Data are here presented to supplement, amplify, and in some matters to correct the incidental historical content of Carl Moyer's interesting address on "Medical Education in Dallas", written originally for radio presentation. He sets forth in vigorous fashion problems of present-day medical training, and particularly those of the local medical school, of which he was Dean. He spoke with such authority on cur­ rent problems and achieved his major purpose so well that his historical side-glances, in many respects erroneous, might be uncritically accepted by students of medical history. Moyer's purpose was not historical and his data were prob­ ably taken from biographies published within the past decade. My purpose is exclusively historical. It is to present data drawn from contemporary records relating to the nine (not two) Dallas medical schools projected during the decade ending 1910, with some notice of the medical training of men concerned with them.
