Baltimore, Nov. 19, 1907.
To the Editor:
—In the last two issues of The Journal, under Medical News from Maryland, have appeared notices concerning the new medical library building which the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland contemplates erecting within the next year, and for which it is conducting an active campaign to raise $100,000. The impression has been given that this is to be an Osler memorial building, which is only partially true. The committee in charge of this work deems it advisable to present through your columns the real purpose of this new building.During the winter of 1905, when friends of Dr. Osler learned that he was going to leave this country, they conceived the idea of erecting a building to be known as the "Osler Memorial Building." Funds were collected for this purpose amounting to about $20,000 and then the matter rested for nearly a year.
