travelling fellowship and took up studies in Paris with the distinguished French master of histological technique, Prenant. His grounding in the French school of histology with Ranvier's pupil, López García, in Valladolid stood him in good stead now, and he became an accomplished investigator under Prenant, publishing his work on the ovary in 1913. He travelled extensively in Europe and studied the most modern experimental techniques in pathology in London and later in Berlin. On returning to Madrid he found that scientific circles were being rejuvenated by one of Cajal

Francis C. Grant

John Rhea Barton Professor of Surgery in the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. His ability as an organizer was at once apparent. Within three years he had infused new life into the Department, established fellowships for the teaching of young men, and correlated properly the clinical and research activities. But, surgery by no means held his entire attention. In 1910 he established with others the Social Service Department in the University Hospital, the second perhaps in this country. In 1914 he organized the Public Charities Association of

He had been a Rhodes Scholar at Balliol, a college that he loved, and where, to his pride, he was elected to a Fellowship in 1937. When he came back from the United States in 1927 he was resolved to devote himself entirely to neurosurgery, and, since

certification of diplomates. In 1948 there were 57 approved institutions offering 138 residencies and fellowships. By 1950 the figures had risen to 79 and 181 respectively. The 1952 listing includes 94 approved institutions with 241 traineeships. However, in the academic year 1951–52 there were 17 per cent vacancies in neurosurgical residencies, with 38 per cent vacancies at the first-year training level.

It will be of great interest to us all to observe the future course of this society and of neurological surgery in the years to come. The past
