Medical Society Board
Studies New Appeal By Colored Doctors A group representing Washing ton’s colored doctors has renewed efforts to gain membership in the District Medical Society, and has received word that the question is before the society’s executive board for study. The situation was outlined in two recent letters published in the current issue of the Bulletin, pub lication of the Medico-Chiurgical Society of the District of Colum bia. Officials said 207 of the Dis trict’s 226 colored doctors are members of the latter society. About one-fourth of the colored doctors here, officials said, are members of the National Medical Association. Membership in the American Medical Association, however, is limited to membership in constituent county and State societies, of which the District Medical Society is representative here. While colored doctors have been invited to scientific meetings held by the District Medical Society, it was pointed out that “no satisfac tory conclusion” has been reached on the membership question. Conference Held in June. The letters published in the Bulletin, were between Dr. W. Montague Cobb, professor of anatomy at Howard University Medical School and chairman of a special committee of his society, and Theodore Wiprud. secretary of the District Medical Society. Dr. Cobb’s letter, dated November 6. follows: “Doubtless, you will recall the conference on June 21 held by pre-arrangement in your office be tween you and Dr. (John) Minor, then your president, and a com mittee from our society composed of Dr. J. Sinclair Perry, our Presi dent, Dr. Edward R. Mazique, chairman of our committee on programs, and myself as chair man, relative to the admission of Negro physicians to the Medical Society of the District of Columbia. “We set forth in brief, that we were each and all familiar with the historical background of the exclusion of our physicians from the local medical society and the significance of such exclusion. We stated our belief that recent events such as the admission of a Negro student to the Medical School of the University of Arkansas, the admission of Negro physicians to the Baltimore Coun ty Medical Society, and alteration of the constitution of the Missouri State Medical Society so as not to bar any race, were indications that representative professional opinion was advancing very rapid ly in a liberal direction. We ad vised that it had occurred to us, therefore, that similarly progres sive thought might exist in the District Medical Society. Asks About Decision. “Because of this possibility, we said we had come to you in formally to present the matter to you anew, so that if this ques tion could be settled merely by a meeting of minds in a spirit of amity and goodwill, we wanted to make such a step possible. “Our reception by Dr. Minor and you was very gracious. You advised that the matter would be presented to your board that same evening and that in due course we should hear from you. “I am sure you will agree that a little over four months is a reasonable time to wait. On be half of our special committee, I am writing to request that you inform us of your decision.” 1 Discussed By Board. Following is Mr. Wiprud’s reply, dated December 1: “Your letter of November 5 should have been answered before this, but a reply was withheld pending a meeting of our execu tive board. The meeting was held on November 28 at which time I was asked to write you expressing the board’s appreciation for the friendliness of your letter and to let you know what has occurred since your conference with Dr. John Minor, then our president, and myself. “The admission of your mem bers to our society has been dis cussed at nearly every meeting of the board since that time, but to date no satisfactory conclusion has been reached. How soon there will be a meeting of minds we do not Vet know. But we can promise you that the matter is not closed so far as our board is concerned.
