To the editor: Dr. Schwartz's account, "The Tolbutamide Controversy: A Personal Perspective" (Ann Intern Med 75:303-306, 1971), is a valuable insight for the thousands of us who do not specialize in diabetes but who undertake to care for patients with maturity-onset diabetes. With the diabetologists sharply divided into two armed camps, physicians whom we know to be sincere and competent are engaged in rancorous public debate bearing little resemblance to reasoned scientific discourse. It is refreshing to find this reasonable presentation by a physician of judgment and maturity, writing as a physician of judgment and maturity.
