Attendance at the Ninety-Eighth Annual Session of the American Medical Association was second largest in the history of the Association. More than 13,000 physicians and almost 15,000 visitors were registered. Many physicians from foreign countries were present, evidence of the international standing of the Association and the worldwide interest in its activities.
No one phase of activity was most interesting, since the varied interests of physicians and guests drew maximum attendance in every section and exhibit. The scope of this session was tremendous, including 212 scientific exhibits and 341 technical exhibits; more than 300 scientific papers were presented at the Scientific Section meetings. The color television show alone attracted over 30,000 visitors. Demonstrations and interviews, and the interest shown in them, were continuously in evidence. The audiences at the Section meetings were among the most attentive attracted to such programs.
