This is an official directory of 14,000 specialists who have been certified by the American Boards and replaces the individual lists of the twelve examining boards. The new directory brings much additional information, such as hospital appointments, teaching positions and society memberships. In the first section the purposes of the Advisory Board for Medical Specialties are described, and separate sections are devoted to the special boards, with the list of officers and the examination requirements of each given in detail. Finally, an alphabetical list of diplomates is given.

This publication is priced at cost; as it is in line with improving graduate medical education, it merits approval and deserves every one's cooperation.

It is planned to issue a revised edition every two years. The directing editor is Dr. Paul Titus; the associate editor, Dr. J. Stewart Rodman, and the advisory editors, Dr. Paul M. Wood, Dr. C.
