Unofficial Committee for Organization of Pathologic Section.
—Appreciating the importance of and the growth in pathologic science, Dr. W. W. Keen, President of the American Medical Association, entered into correspondence with some of the leading pathologists of the country relative to inaugurating a Section on Pathology in the American Medical Association. The correspondence showed that all are heartily in favor of such a Section. That no time be lost it has been thought best that a meeting be held at Atlantic City in June, for the purpose of forming such a Section, provided it meets with the approval of the Association. To arrange for such a meeting of those interested in pathology, the following committee has been unofficially appointed by the president: Ludvig Hektoen, Chicago, Chairman; Frank B. Wynn, Indianapolis, Secretary; Walter L. Bierring, Iowa City, Iowa; George Blumer, Albany, N. Y.; W. T. Councilman, Boston; G. Dock, Ann Arbor.
