William Allen Pusey Memorial Lecture.—Dr. Harvey Blank, Research Associate in Dermatology, Columbia University, and Associate in Dermatology, University of Pennsylvania, Graduate School of Medicine, on Sept. 21, 1955, delivered the ninth William Allen Pusey Memorial Lecture of the Institute of Medicine of Chicago at a joint meeting with the Chicago Dermatological Society. The subject was "Clinical Aspects of Recent Virus Research."

Therein lies an unusual circumstance. In 1933, when Chicago celebrated "A Century of Progress," Dr. Blank, then a youngster, was fascinated by the popular medical exhibit and spent many hours viewing it. In retrospect he believes that the experience influenced his choice of medicine as a career rather than chemistry. Until he delivered the Pusey lecture some 20 years later he was not aware that Dr. Pusey, a trustee of "A Century of Progress," was directly responsible for the medical exhibit.
