There is in existence a Harvey Cushing Society comprised of some 47 active members: a group of men interested in various aspects of neurosurgery scattered all the way from New Orleans to Toronto, from San Francisco to Boston, and with corresponding members in Breslau, Manchester, Oxford, Paris and Stockholm. It is a lively little club, each member owing something of his accomplishments and ideals to Harvey Cushing. Thus, when this society held its eighth annual meeting in New Haven last April to celebrate Dr. Cushing's seventieth birthday, the occasion was not without significance. There were speeches and the drinking of healths; tributes, telegrams and letters from members who could not be there, and even more telegrams and letters from nonmembers who wished they were of the elect. On the whole, the occasion was a joyish one with a good deal of merriment.
