THE annual congress of the Royal Institute of Public A Health was held at Liverpool, July 15—21, under the presidency of the Earl of Derby. The sections met in the various departments of the University College, and were thus closely associated and readily accessible. The proceedings were opened by an interesting address from the Earl of Derby, in which he directed attention to the considerable progress in sanitation that had been made by many ancient civilisations. The Harben medals for 1901 and 1902 were then presented to Sir Charles Cameron and Prof. W. R. Smith.
