The week of March 16-21, 1959, a Workshop on Reconstructive Middle Ear Surgery was held in Chicago to bring together a number of the active contributors to this rapidly developing aspect of otology with Professor Wullstein, one of the foremost pioneers in this field. The speakers who comprised the faculty were selected because of their original contributions to this field, and the members of the Worshop consisted of board-certified otolaryngologists, accepted on the basis of priority of registration. The facilities limited the number of participants to approximately 280 registrants.
The formal lectures each day were limited to 30 minutes each, allowing a leisurely question-and-answer period after each luncheon. Each day ended with an unrehearsed round-table discussion by the speakers of that day, with audience participation. In addition, on the first three days there were motion pictures by members of the faculty. These motion pictures supplemented the scientific sessions.
