The American Dermatological Association is the senior society of its kind in this country. Membership is by election and comprises, for the most part, teachers of dermatology and syphilology and outstanding practitioners. The bulk of this volume consists of a roster of the members, one page to each, with a biographic sketch and individual portrait—a veritable panorama of the leaders of the specialty from the beginning of the society to the present time. Honorary and Corresponding members, representing eminent and distinguished foreign contemporaries, are also listed. A few chapters are devoted to colorful reminiscences of the founders and charter members of the Association and incidents relating to the earlier scientific sessions.
