To the Medical Alumni of the DnlTeralty oí Michigan. The Washtenaw County Medical Society at a late meeting recommended the formation oí ;m Alumni Association of the medioal departinunt of the Univorsity. The same thing has been talked of by alumni of various classes for several yeai-s, but no action taken. The gradaatssof böththe academical and law departments have associations in successfut operation of muutuaJ benefit to themsolves and the Unirersity. The undursigned graduates of the medical department'of the Oniveraity join m a cali to the medical alumni to umte with them in a meeoting for the organizatiou of a Medical Alumni Aysociation of the University, to be held at the Gregory House, Ann Arbor, on Tuosday, the 23d iust. (tlie night boiore medical commencement), at 8 o'elock p. m. A supper will lie servud at 9 p. in. The value of such au organization to the alumni md to the Universitj', as well as to the profession particularly of our own State, great now, will increaso with overy year. The medical graduate8 of the University, nuinbering over 1,2(10, are scattering all over our country and continent. Some, alas ! are dead. Of those who survive, many fill places of distinction and honor, and all are in positions to matorially inñuence public opinión in behalf of our profession and enhauce the interests of the Umversity. Their history, with that of their teachers, forma an interosting part of the history of our professiou for a u_uartor of a century. Oue need of such an association is showu in the difficulty of communicating with many of the alumni, whosO address is to us uuknown, and it is urgently requested that all those who cannot attend this first meeting will send to Dr. Breakey, or any resident alumnus, their present address with any greeting they eau give us ; also the names of any alumni whom they may know to have died, with any interesting facts of their professional hves. The alumni need such an association to keep up au organized bond of sympathy and interest with each pther and their Alma Mater, while the University needs their friendly remeinbrauce, their inlluence and their aid. Let us give a day to revisit oíd ecenes, revive old memories and greet old frieds. C. GEORUE, class of '72. ROBT. J FE ARE, clrss of '69 JOHN KAPP, class of '68. BYRON W. CHEEVER, class of '67.
