Baltimore, Oct. 29, 1907.
To the Editor:
It may interest those who showed interest in the scheme of my proposed Cyclopedia of American Medical Biography to learn that 150 biographies have been sent in and over a hundred more promised. The pleasant and willing cooperation of physicians in all states argues well for the ultimate success of the book, but helpers are lacking for the Carolinas, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. Pictures, photographs and signatures of medical worthies are also still needed.In order that full credit shall be given to men who have been eminent in any particular way, fourteen of my confrères have undertaken to write up specialists, and a chapter will be devoted to those who have excelled in any science besides that of medicine. Dr. Bardeen (Wisconsin) sends in a suggestive list of anatomists:T. H. Fisher.W. S. Forbes.C. La Ford.J. D. Godman.R.
