To celebrate his eightieth birthday, an appreciative review of Professor Haab's life and manifold achievements was written by a former assistant, Dr. J. Streiff, of Genoa. This memoir is most timely as Professor Haab's death has just been announced. It traces Haab's development from his start as assistant to Horner to the stage when as professor of ophthalmology in Zurich he occupied for many years the leading position in Switzerland. It also gives a list of his contributions to ophthalmology, which as the author well states are an important part of the history of ophthalmology in the last fifty years.
This sympathetic and affectionate tribute will be read with pleasure by Professor Haab's many admirers and friends in this country.
