I want first of all to express my thanks to the members of the Society for the honor and privilege of serving as your president during the past year. There are many reasons why we should be proud of our membership in this Society, the most important being that we are associated with, and participating in, a truly global effort in the field of Medicine, Medical Research and Training. The Society has contributed much, during its fifty-eight years of continuous activity, to the leadership and support of health and medical care programs which have involved disciplines in all areas of basic and applied science, and has incorporated peoples of all areas of the globe. We are, in all our efforts, an international organization.

A brief review of the early history of the American Society of Tropical Medicine seems proper in view of present developments in world affairs.It is of interest to note that a small group of physicians met on March 9, 1903 for the formation of an organization in Philadelphia for the Study of Tropical Diseases.
