This volume, which is the only official directory of its kind, represents a great achievement on the part of the Advisory Board for Medical Specialties. Especial credit is due to the editor, Dr. Paul Titus, ably assisted by Dr. Rodman, the associate editor, and an editorial board, consisting of the secretaries of the component boards.
The directory contains data concerning approximately 14,400 specialists who have been certified by the twelve special American boards and by one of the two affiliate boards. It includes the vast majority of recognized specialists in the United States and has numerous features which make it invaluable to physicians, hospitals, libraries, medical societies and the laity. It should be of great value in making hospital appointments and electing members in special medical societies and for both specialists and general practitioners in referring patients.
