FRANK HOWARD LAHEY—PRESIDENT-ELECT  Perhaps the greatest single attraction in the field of graduate education in the United States for a number of years has been Dr. Frank Howard Lahey of Boston, just elected to the position of President-Elect of the American Medical Association, shortly after passing his sixtieth birthday. He was born in Haverhill, Mass., on June 1, 1880, and received the degree of doctor of medicine from Harvard University in 1904. After his graduation he served as surgeon in the Long Island Hospital in 1904-1905 and in the Boston City Hospital, 1905-1907, and became resident surgeon of the Haymarket Square Relief Station in 1908 and instructor in surgery in Harvard Medical School, 1908-1909 and from 1912 to 1915. He was assistant professor and later professor of surgery in Tufts Medical School from 1913 to 1917. He also served as professor of clinical surgery in Harvard Medical School in 1923-1924.
