Fonds Number: 
P417
Abstract: 

Osler informs Gorgas that Mrs. Whitelaw Reid wishes to pay the expenses of 2 or 3 men of the army and the same from the Navy to come over and make a careful study of the British Medical Service methods during the war. Keogh is favourable but says it must be asked for by the US Government. Asks him if it would be useful and if the plan is feasible. Osler thinks that this is an opportunity not be missed. Mentions that he is writing to the President and is asking him to confer with Gorgas and Wood. Asks him to send a reprint of his address. P.S. Enjoins him to keep Mrs. Reid 's name quiet, as she is not a persona grata with the President.
