The Psychiatry Section of the Paris International Medical Congress

Extract

It was unfortunate that the International Medical Congress and the British Medical Association Annual Meeting were both fixed for the same week, as otherwise there would doubtless have been a larger attendance of our countrymen at the Section of Psychiatry of the former, held in Paris from the 2nd to the 9th of August. Amongst the British delegates present we note the names of Sir John Sibbald, Dr. Fletcher Beach (President of our Association), and Drs. Benham, Fraser, Shuttleworth, and J. F. Sutherland; and Sir John Sibbald was appointed a Vice-President of the Section. The presidential chair was ably filled by Dr. Magnan, Physician to St. Anne's Asylum, and Dr. Ritti (of Charenton) proved a vigorous and courteous Secretary. The Section was throughout largely attended, the discussions were well sustained, and much genial hospitality was dispensed, both privately and in the course of visits organised to asylums. In this last respect the Section of Psychiatry seems to have contrasted favourably with some others,—so far, at least, as the experience of English visitors is concerned.
