THE SCIENTIFIC EXHIBIT AT THE DETROIT SESSION
A New System of Classification and AwardsFor many reasons, liberal contributions to the Scientific Exhibit are certain at the coming session of the Association in Detroit. Several excellent exhibits have already been promised. The Committee on Scientific Exhibit desires to call attention to the following:In the evolution of this important enterprise at the Annual Session, research exhibits have come more and more to be the dominant feature. This is as it should be and no doubt will continue to be. Naturally, institutions (universities, hospitals, etc.) have contributed the bulk of this work. This has rather tended to discourage effort on the part of societies and individuals not having college or hospital connections. Accordingly, this year the committee offers a plan of classification which should stimulate participation by individuals, especially practitioners, who constitute a large majority of the membership.
