On May 17, 1934, there was held in Vienna the first general clinical session of the new Austrian Dermatological Society. Very appropriately the busts of Hebra, Kaposi and Riehl looked down on the assembly, which was honored by the presence of Hofrat Prof. Gustav Riehl, the only survivor of this great trio.
