During the month of January you have received from the Central Office of the American Academy of Pediatrics, two books that we believe will be of great value to you if properly used.
The first of these is a Fellowship list for 1962, which gives the alphabetical and geographic listing of all of the Fellows of the Academy. It also contains a list of the officers, the District and State Chairmen and the National Committee Members, Liaison Representatives to National Organizations, and, at the end of the book, a copy of our Constitution and By-laws.
Since all the Fellows listed herein have met the basic requirements for Fellowship in the Academy, this directory may be used with confidence in the referring of patients who have moved from one area to another. The Central Office deserves great credit for the speed and accuracy with which it prepares this valuable list and places it in the hands of the membership.
The other book is entitled "Annual Reports of Committee and Liaison Representatives."
This compilation of the annual reports of all of our National Committees and of our Liaison Representatives was first made available to the membership in 1957 and has been sent out annually ever since.
In it you will find not only the usual succinct, factual, and extremely informative reports of the Executive Director and the Secretary but also the reports of 17 National Committees, 6 Section Committees, and 22 Liaison Representatives.
These reports are of importance and great inteest not only to the more than 250 Fellows of the Academy whose work as Committee members and Liaison Representatives made them possible, but also to the more than 6,000 others in whose name this work was done.
