Thursday Morning Session, May 28 PRESIDENTIALADDRESS. DR. FRANCIS R. PACKARD, Philadelphia.

One of the most momentous meetings ever held by this society was that which occurred under the presidency of Dr. Thomas J. Harris, at Montreal, Canada, in 1926. At that meeting the final steps were taken for the incorporation of the society in order that it might be legally qualified to receive and expend funds for scientific research, and the committee on otosclerosis was able to announce that the Carnegie Foundation had granted to the society a large sum of money to carry on its work and that the movement was well under way to collect a large fund from other sources for the same purpose. At the same meeting Dr. Harris in a delightful presidential address gave a splendid summary of the history of otology in this country, especially of the work of the American Otological Society.
