Medical Notes [excerpt]

     MCKINLEY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL.—The William McKinley Memorial Hospital League of New York, which was incorporated at Albany in September, 1908, has announced the opening to public subscription of the fund that is to be raised to erect a hospital in New York City in memory of President McKinley. It is stated that the hospital will be open to physicians for the treatment of their individual cases and that it is designed to maintain in connection with it tuberculosis camps in various parts of the country, as well as seaside homes for sickly children. The league expects to raise a fund of $7,000,000, and the financial management will be in the hands of a committee of seven, none of whom is to be a member of the league, and each of whom will be required to contribute $10,000 personally. Some of those on the honorary council are the governors of Massachusetts, New Jersey, Virginia and Ohio, Joseph H. Choate, and Senator Burton of Ohio, and the advisory committee includes among its members Nathan Strauss and Richard C. Morse, international secretary of the Young Men’s Christian Association.
