The kind assistance and cooperation of Dr. Franco Arese, of Osnago, province Como, in Italy, was what made possible this article on Alfonso Corti, the anatomist, whose grandnephew he is. In answer to my request for new or unpublished material on his uncle's life, Dr. Arese sent photographs, personal letters, documents, with permission to reproduce them as I saw fit, and, as a gift to me, a stranger, one of the very rare reprints of Corti's doctor's thesis. He also sent a chronological table of the chief happenings of his renowned relative's life, by painstaking research illuminating those periods which had hitherto been shadowy or of which nothing was known. Owing to his efforts, for the first time a veracious and detailed biographical report, though brief, of the great Italian scientist was possible, and I must be ever indebted to Dr. Arese for his help.Miss Bertha Hallam
