The "Consolidated Indices" consists of a comprehensive index covering 160,000 references and 22,500 author references from the 30,000 pages of the four periodicals of the American Roentgen Ray Society. Under the chairmanship of Dr. Merrill C. Sosman, the publication committee, in collaboration with the editorial office, began early in 1936 to formulate plans for a complete subject and author index covering this entire group of publications. Dr. George H. Smith dealt with this mass of material. In the results of his compilation are seen a praiseworthy accomplishment.
In the "Indices" the transactions of the society, the original articles, the editorials and the biographic and historical sketches, together with the abstracts of both domestic and foreign journals, have been carefully and thoroughly indexed with regard both to subjects and to authors.
Included in this series, covering a period of approximately thirty-five years, are: the Transactions of the American Roentgen Ray Society
