BY CLARK BELL, ESQ., LL. D.
This eminent man and scientist was honored at the re-
cent session of the American International Congress on
Tuberculosis, held at the St. Louis Exposition, October 3,
4 and 5, 19o4, by an election as one of the Honorary Presi-
dents of that body for his contribution to that Congress of
his paper, entitled The Patheogeneus Microbe of Phthisis
of the Lung.
It was his contribution to the Pathology and Bacterio-
logy of Tuberculosis.
The paper was written in the German language and he
sent also an analysis and resume of it in the Italian lan-
guage. He sent with it to the chairman of the Committee
on Organization of the Congress most beautiful ilustrations
of his research and discoveries for reproduction in this
country 64 plates splendidly executed.
The paper was read also before the Medico-Legal Society
of New York by the Corresponding Secretary, Moritz
Ellinger, Esq., and that body directed that it be translated
and published in the Medico-Legal Journal. Hon. Moritz
Ellinger has the translation of the paper well nigh com-
pleted, and the first part of this translation will appear in
this number of the Journal and the whole brought out
shortly to go into the Bulletin of that Congress.
Prof Von Schroen claims to be the discoverer of a new
parasite essentially different from the microbe bacillus of
Koch and which he here describes.
His paper treats of the pathological difference between
simple Tuberculosis and Phthisis of the lung.
Read before the Medico-Legal Society and Psychological Section,
February 15, 1905.
