On April 16th–18th, 1913, the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland, opened the Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic. No event in the history of American psychiatry more justly deserved celebration, and none ever received more dignified and fitting observation. Scholars of world renown gathered from widely-separated parts to participate in the launching of the new enterprise. Practically the entire fifth number of vol. lxix of the American Journal of Insanity is devoted to the publication of the addresses delivered at the opening exercises, and every reader of the Journal of Mental Science would do well to review this remarkable collection of memoirs. There will be found a more complete and more authoritative résumé and retrospect of psychiatric progress than could possibly be conveyed in one or all of the annual letters of your correspondent.
