PRESIDENT'SADDRESS. DR. GEORGE M. COATES, Philadelphia.
The American Laryngological Association is the oldest society in continuous existence, local or national, devoted to the study of diseases of the nose and throat. Its history has been always closely identified with all the progress made in the development of this specialty, and its transactions over a period of fifty-six years faithfully reflect the continuous advances made through the years. Because of this history and because membership is necessarily limited to those who have definite accomplishments to their credit, fellowship in this association is an honor to be striven for and, when obtained, to be cherished. Loyalty, friendship and good comradeship have ever been the attributes of the fellows, and many traditions have developed during the years.
The Casselberry prize has been given five times for meritorious work in research and the de Roaldes medal, three times to those who have contributed
