Abstract

During the recent otolaryngological meetings held in Montreal from May 30 to June 5, 1926, a cabinet of prepared specimens and teaching models was exhibited. These included thirty or forty temporal bones, cut or drilled to show various structures. The bones were whitened beforehand; the semicircular canals, nerves, arteries and veins were painted different colors, and the specimens were mounted.

The number of inquiries made at the time leads me to describe in some detail how two of the preparations are made; I do this also for the benefit of those connected with universities where specimens of this nature may be desired for teaching purposes. This description is prompted, further, by the fact that Professor Nager, during his recent trip to this continent, was interested in the work and made notes of all the particulars, saying that he would like to add them to his collection in Zurich.
