The first number of the American Journal of Diseases of Children, the new periodical to be published by the American Medical Association, will appear in January, 1911. This journal is established at the request of a large number of the leading pediatricians of the country. At the St. Louis session, the Board of Trustees recommended to the House of Delegates that such a journal be established and the recommendation was adopted. At its meeting in June the board decided that the publication should begin in January, and that there should be an editorial board of six, as in the case of the Archives of Internal Medicine. At the October meeting the Trustees selected, from those recommended by a committee of pediatricians previously appointed for the purpose, the following Editorial Board: William Fitch Cheney, San Francisco; Frank Spooner Churchill, Chicago; Edwin E. Graham, Philadelphia; John Howland, New York City; Abraham Jacobi, New York City; John Lovett Morse, Boston.
