P"(obliterated - with certainty, it is the hand of Michael Pijoan, M.D. who was the secretary of the Society at time of publication). William H. Welch (1850-1934) is among the great modern American physicians: he was the first Pathologist-in-Chief at The Johns Hopkins Hospital (1889-1916), the first Dean of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (1893-98), President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (1906-07), President, American Medical Association, 1910-11; President, All-America Conference on Venereal Diseases, 1920. The Johns Hopkins University Medical Library bears his name & in 1929-30 he became First Director of Johns Hopkins University, Institute of the History of Medicine. His work in the pathology of diseases has garnered him 5 citings in Garrison & Morton, he practiced military medicine during WWI & was awarded Distinguished Service Medal. His contributions to the study of the history of Medicine are extensive, as is indicated by the dedication page, lovingly written by F.H. Garrison, famed medical bibliographer. This is a republication of Welch's 1907 Presidential Address to the American Association for the Advancement of Science - one of the few copies extant of this delicate little volume. Size: 12mo.
