The American Neurological Association celebrated its 100th anniversary in June 1975, and in honor of the occasion brought out this handsome volume. The editors put considerable effort into looking at both recent and remote history of neurology in the United States, and spared no effort compiling anecdotes and other minor information that convey a sense of humanity to the individual biographies.
The book gives a history of neurology from many standpoints. General overviews include an introduction by Houston Merritt and historical excerpts from J. R. Hunt and C. K. Mills from the semicentennial volume in 1924. Biographies of ANA presidents follow, and the book then describes a regional history of neurology in North America. Governmental organizations devoted to supporting and furthering the conquest of neurological diseases are discussed, as are the contributions of neurology to the military services. Finally, a useful appendix lists training centers and present and former members
