An Address delivered before the Section of Ophthalmology of the American Medical Association, June 25, 1889.BY GEO. E. FROTHINGHAM, M.D., OF ANN ARBOR, MICH., CHAIRMAN OF THE SECTION.It is my pleasant duty, respected colleagues, to welcome you as you commence the second decade of work in this Section. Believing that those of like tastes and pursuits can develop best by occasional reunions and interchange of views, the ophthalmologists of the American Medical Association met and organized this Section at the meeting in Buffalo, in 1878. Drs. X. C. Scott, of Cleveland, Eugene Smith, of Detroit, and Dudley S. Reynolds, of Louisville, were the originators of the movement. Dr. H. Knapp, of New York, was elected Chairman, and Dr. X. C. Scott, of Cleveland, was made Secretary. The first meeting of the Section for actual work was at Atlanta, Ga., May, 1879.The
