To the Editor:—It was my good fortune to attend the annual meeting of the British Association of Dermatology and Syphilology held at Edinburgh from July 13 to 15 this past summer. The meeting was conducted by Dr. Robert Aitken, president, with Dr. J. E. M. Wigley, London, as secretary and Dr. G. A. Grant Peterkin, local secretary. The sessions were held in the Department of Dermatology (Prof. G. H. Percival) of the Royal Infirmary and included four half days of programmed papers and a half day clinical meeting. One afternoon was devoted to recreation, and all three evenings were occupied with lighter gatherings. The attendance was about 75 members and guests.
