The Medical Convention at Montpellier
Montpellier, the seat of one of the oldest universities of France, which conferred on Rabelais his title of doctor, decided to have its journées médicales as well as Paris. Its convention was accordingly held, November 4-6, under the chairmanship of Professor Ducamp, coincidently with the centenary of the discovery of bromine by Jérome Balard, a chemist of Montpellier. The convention brought together a large number of medical men belonging chiefly to the region round about, together with a few physicians from Spain and Italy. The three principal papers were presented by Professors Forgue, Hédon and Perroncito. The army medical service had a display of ambulances, equipment for the transportation of wounded, and, more particularly, sanitary airplanes, similar to those exhibited in Paris last July.
