The Lister Centenary
For the centenary of the birth of Lister, April 5, 1927, a celebration is being organized in London. The executive committee consists of representatives of the universities, learned societies and medical bodies. Invitations to send delegates have been addressed to medical institutions in the dominions and abroad. The celebrations, which will take place, April 6 and 7, will include a reception of delegates and the delivery of short addresses, a commemorative service in Westminster Abbey, a reception at the Royal College of Surgeons, a conversazione at the house of the Royal Society, and discourses on Lister as physiologist, pathologist and surgeon.
