This organization held its seventeenth annual meeting in Detroit, June 4 and 6.
The specific purpose and work of the Academy, is in the line of elevation of the preliminary educational training of those who intend to enter the medical profession. For a number of years the members were scarcely able to say there were many tangible results following their labors, but this year there were numerous congratulations over what had been accomplished directly and indirectly through their efforts.
The papers read and discussed were sufficient in number and importance to consume all of their two days' session.

Presbrey, of Taunton, Mass.; Treasurer, J. Chester Morris, of Philadelphia; Secretary, Charles McIntire, of Easton, Pa.; Assistant Secretary, Edgar M. Green, of Philadelphia,
