The Thomas W. Salmon Memorial Committee Report and Presentation of Portrait of The Late Dr. Thomas W. Salmon

Mr. President, Fellows and Members of the Academy:

I appreciate the honor of having been requested by your President to appear upon the program of this Annual Meeting. In behalf of the Thomas W. Salmon Memorial Committee of the Academy, I wish briefly to account for our stewardship.

In keeping with the obligations assumed by this Committee, as agent for the Academy, the fields of psychiatry and mental hygiene have been surveyed in this country and abroad and the names of twenty-seven leaders in psychiatry, neurology, mental hygiene, psychology and the social sciences have been before the Committee for more than a year as possible recipients of the Salmon Lectureship award. The recent and remote contributions of these scientists have been made a matter of record and in the archives of the Committee future accomplishments will be recorded.

It is a great pleasure to be able to advise the Fellows of the Academy of the unanimous selection of Dr. C. Macfie Campbell as the Thomas W. Salmon Memorial Lecturer for the year 1934. Dr. Campbell, Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard University since 1920, has been an active participant in all of the leading movements for the advancement of psychiatry. He was, for a number of years, President of the Massachusetts Mental Hygiene Society. He delivered the Shattuck Lecture in 1924 on “Psychiatry and the Practice of Medicine,” the Gehrmann Lectures in Hygiene at the University of Illinois, in 1932, on “The Schizophrenic Problem”; and the Lowell Lectures in Boston in 1932 on “Human Personality and the Environment.”

His experience in directing a hospital which deals with a wide variety of social problems associated with psychiatric conditions and his eminence in the psychiatric world are so well known that it is unnecessary to review in detail his many contributions.

The Salmon Memorial Lectures will be given here on April 13, 20, and 27, 1934.
