In its first 75 years, Annals of Internal Medicine evolved from being primarily a vehicle for papers presented at the Annual Session of the American College of Physicians to a journal in which all manuscripts are peer reviewed and decisions to publish are based solely on the editor's view of which papers are most important. This evolution was described in detail in an article published for Annal's 50th anniversary (1). The story of the journal's first 50 years was also the story of the emergence of internal medicine as a discipline; the early Annals editors represented the specialties of the time or internal medicine subspecialties (Aldred Warthin, pathology; Carl Weller, pathology; Maurice Pincoffs, tropical medicine and preventive medicine; Paul Clough, hematology; J. Russell Elkinton, nephrology; and Edward Huth, nephrology). Since 1990, the editors of Annals have been general internists when they became editors (Robert and Suzanne Fletcher, Frank Davidoff, and Harold Sox), with the associate editors representing the internal medicine subspecialties, general internal medicine, and other fields of expertise (Table 1)
