In this issue we publish Dr. Christopher Frank’s winning Grand Prix article on how Glasgow nurses were shielded against drug addicts by glass barricades; and Natalia Vieyra’s winning Silver Prize on morphinomania in Parisian society. We offer works by Masolino, Franciabigio, Taddeo Gaddi, and Winslow Homer; tours of Alcatraz and Broadmoor; visits to ancient Persia, Magna Graecia, and Byzantium; and notes on Luigi Galvani, Frantisek Chvostek, and Oliver Wendell Holmes. We report on the history of several epidemics; on clowns in hospitals and on black barber shops; and how once upon a time fees for physicians were honorary and not binding or recoverable in the courts.
