The Mississippi Valley Medical Association [excerpt]

THE twenty-seventh annual meeting of the Mississippi Valley Medical Association, held at Hotel Victory, Put-in-Bay Island, Ohio, September 12, 13 and 14, will always be a memorable one. Memorable by reason of the universal sorrow and sadness over the serious illness and death of President McKinley. On this account the session of the third day was brief, and consisted only of passing suitable resolutions pertaining to the sad event, after which final adjournment occurred out of respect to the memory of the great and noble President, one so universally loved and respected.
     The meeting, aside from this feeling of sadness and sorrow, was up to the average in the character of the scientific work accomplished. The programme was one of unusual interest, and shows that the President and Secretary were untiring in their zeal to have a good and valuable session.
     Two sections—medical and surgical—divided the honors in having good papers. The time given to the session was ample, as no diversions existed to attract members elsewhere. Put-in-Bay Island is an ideal convention place, especially during the summer season, and the Hotel Victory in its vastness has all of the essential requirements necessary for the accommodation of a convention. Were it not for the calamity which befell our Nation on the 14th of September, and bowed the Association in sorrow, this meeting would have been in every way a success.
     The loyalty and love for our country, the great love for the President, that man of God whose life and works seemed inspired, and for whom exists that profound respect which can only emanate from a thinking, loving people, prompted the Mississippi Valley Medical Association to crown this twenty-seventh annual session with suitable resolutions of respect.
