The fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Boston City Hospital was observed with appropriate exercises at that institution on Saturday, June 20. The addresses on that occasion deserve preservation in permanent form since they are a valuable contribution to the medical history of this community. The half-century in which has fallen the activity of the City Hospital has been a time of important progress in medical science, whose growth has been ably represented in its work. One of the most notable and creditable of the advances in which the hospital had a pioneer part was the early demonstration of the practical use and efficacy of von Behring's diphtheria antitoxin by Dr. John H. McCollom, now superintendent, then chief of the south department, of the hospital. This was a work of which the hospital and the Boston profession may well be proud.
The Boston City Hospital is to be cordially congratulated and commended on the completion of its first fifty years of growth and activity, and has the best wishes of the medical profession for a future of equal distinction, progress and success.
