O. F. HEDLEY, M.D.
Over a quarter of a century has passed since Herrick1 in 1912 directed the attention of the medical profession to the clinical diagnosis of acute coronary occlusion. Although a few men before Herrick had diagnosed this condition antemortem, he was the first to focus interest on this now well recognized clinical entity. In the words of Sir William Osler,2 "In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurs."
During the period since 19193 studies have been made of this disease from nearly every conceivable point of view.
