ABSTRACT

Last year 3,527 obituaries of physicians were published in The Journal. Of the total 3,354 were residents of the United States and 173 of Canada. Two physicians died in Puerto Rico, 3 in the Philippine Islands, 2 in Hawaii and 1 in China. One was killed in West Africa while serving as captain in the British Army. The total group included 122 obituaries of women physicians.

Some obituaries are reported too late for publication and some are withheld for lack of suitable data with which to compile a satisfactory notice. Thus 241 more deaths were totaled in the American Medical Directory Report Service, including the United States, possessions and Canada, than were listed in 1941 in The Journal. A total of 3,460 is considered here for the United States alone or 106 more than the 3,354 deaths reported in The Journal.

For the academic year ended in June 1942 there
