First, I would like to acknowledge our indebtedness to Mrs. Carl Joerissen, of Washington and Paris, and to those former patients and friends who contributed to the fund that made this research possible.These two research fellows, Dr. Charles F. Geschickter and Dr. Murray M. Copeland, in the Surgical Pathological Laboratory of the Johns Hopkins University, began an independent study of multiple myeloma during the early spring of 1927, their senior year in the medical school, and continued their research in the laboratory and in the library. These studies were published in the Archives of Surgery in the April, 1928, issue, page 807.During this time, they reviewed the entire collection of bone material in the laboratory, and thus prepared themselves for the more intensive study of all lesions of bone and all benign and malignant connective tissue tumors, beginning in July, 1928. Two papers are ready for publication;
