ABSTRACT

This centennial history, covering the years 1848-1948, is more than just the interesting story of the birth, growth, and development of one of the nation's leading state medical societies. Because Pennsylvania, which often has been called "the birthplace of American medicine," can point to so many "firsts" in medical history, the book also reflects the nation's medical progress and the sweeping scientific, social, and economic changes that affected the practice of medicine during the past 100 years. Its chapters are studded with the names of physicians, medical educators, hospitals, medical schools, and other persons and institutions well known for their contributions to the advancement of American medicine. In addition to tracing the general history of the society, the book also has special chapters on the woman's auxiliary, the scientific sections, the county societies, permanent secretaries, publications, present functions and activities, and the centennial celebration.
