Overview

The Society of Physiological Neurology was was founded in 1937 as an outgrowth of the American Neurological Association. It held annual meetings from 1938 to 1942. The collection appears to be the archives of the Society and contains correspondence with members and others by the successive chairmen of the annual meeting committees; membership lists; drafts of programs; and attendance records.

Biographical / Historical

The Society of Physiological Neurology was organized in 1937 by a group of individuals who felt that the American Neurological Association was too oriented to practicing clinicians. Run by an annual committee, the Society was small and highly selective in its membership. It held meetings the day before and in the same location as the ANA from 1938 through 1942. In 1943, the war prevented organizing a meeting. The Society does not appear to have been re-established under this name after the war.
