Abstract: 

Donaldson informs Cushing that the President of the Anthropometric Society is F.X. Dercum. The chief object of the society was the preservation of the brains of its members; Osler's name did not appear among the list of members. However, Donaldson does recall seeing Osler at a meeting of the Society at the Art Club in Philadelphia in 1890. Donaldson will send a copy of Osler's "Leaven of Science," which he delivered at the opening of the Wistar Institute.
