The Leonard Wood Memorial (American Leprosy Foundation) is sponsoring a new Registry of Leprosy at The American Registry of Pathology, a department of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, Washington 25, D. C., under the auspices of the National Research Council. The purpose of this Registry is to promote the study of the pathology of leprosy based on material contributed by leprologists and pathologists throughout the world. Since there is a considerable degree of variation in the behavior of the disease in different parts of the world, the concentration of material in a single center should permit more adequate evaluation of the scope and significance of such variation.

The Leonard Wood Memorial (American Leprosy Foundation) and the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology will shortly appoint a Committee of Consultants to the new Registry. They will assist in the study of the material as a whole and will be available for consultation on individual cases which will be initially reviewed in the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology.
