The 1951 Album was produced by Jean Dalrymple and the Mistresses of Ceremonies were Fay Emerson, Hedda Hopper, Margaret Webster and Tallulah Bankhead. Among the evening's performances were scenes from the musical productions "Finian's Rainbow", the operatic version of "Emperor Jones", "Annie Get Your Gun", "Porgy and Bess" and "Of Thee I Sing"; from the ballet "Rodeo", with music by Aaron Copland; and from the plays "My Sister Eileen" [with Shirley Booth], "Camille" [two versions, one with Uta Hagen, one with Eva LeGallienne], "Our Town" [with Thornton Wilder as the Stage Manager] and Shaw's "The Devil's Disciple".

(Virchow, Rudolf Ludwig Carl; Wolff, Julius; Schatz, Christian Friedrich; and von Waldeyer-Hartz, Heinrich Wilhelm Gottfried).
[Articles on Cholera, Croup & Diphteria, Etc. By Rudolf Virchow], As Published in "Berliner Klinische Wochenschrift. Organ Fur Practische Aerzte... . " Edited by Dr. C.A. Ewald. [a Full Year's Run of 52 Issues from January 5, 1885 Through December 28, 1885, Bound in One Volume As Published].
Berlin: Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1885. 1885. - Quarto, 12-3/4 inches high by 10 inches wide. Marbled black boards backed with a black cloth spine, titled in gilt on the spine. The covers are heavily rubbed with wear to the edges, corners and head & tail of the spine. viii & 873 pages, with occasional textual illustrations. The hinges have been reinforced with early linen tape, though the rear hinge has cracked. The front edge of the brittle front endpaper is chipped. The pages are darkened, yet intact though somewhat fragile. Good. The contents include 4 articles by Rudolf Virchow, including "Croup und Diphtherie" [Croup and Diphtheria] on pages 129 through 133; "Demonstration von Lepra laryngis" [Demonstration of Leprosy of the Larynx] on pages 189 through 191; "Ueber die Vergiftungen durch Miesmuscheln in Wilhelmshaven" [On mussel-poisoning in Wilhelmshaven] on pages 781 through 785; and "Erwiderung gegen C. Thiersch (betr. Choleraatiologie)" [Rebuttal to C. Thiersch in regard to the etiology of cholera] on page 714. Known as the "father of modern pathology", the German physician Rudolf Ludwig Carl Virchow (1821-1902) was also an anthropologist, prehistorian, biologist, writer and politician. As the founder of social medicine, he was know to his colleagues as the "Pope of Medicine". Other articles include Julius Wolff's "Ueber die Ursachen und die Behandlung der Deformitaten, insbesondere des Klumpfusses" [an article regarding the causes and treatment of clubfoot], on pages 161 through 166 and 182 through 186, with illustrations. The work by German surgeon Julius Wolff (1836-1902) is considered one of the milestones defining orthopedics as a distinct discipline in the field of medicine. Wolff's law states that bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the loads under which it is placed. When the load on a particular bone increases, the bone will remodel itself, becoming stronger to resist the pressure. Dr. Heinrich von Waldeyer-Hartz's article: "Die neueren Forschungen im Gebiete der Keimblattlehre" [Recent research in the field of Cotyledon theory], appears on pages 257 through 263 and pages 280 through 288, with illustrations. The German anatomist Heinrich Wilhelm Gottfried von Waldeyer-Hartz (1836-1921) summarized neuron theory and is known for naming the chromosome. Anatomical structures of the human body "Waldeyer's tonsillar ring" and "Waldeyer's glands" (of the eyelids) were named after him. The neuron doctrine which he espoused states that the nervous system is made of discrete individual cells. His article, published here, is on the subject of Cotyledon theory which asserts that in the second to third week after fertilization of the egg, 3 cotyledons emerge to form what will become the human body. Prof. Schatz of the Univeraity of Rostock's article "Zur Therapie der Cephalocelen und der Spina bifida" [an article on therapy for encephalocele and spina bifida] appears here on pages 441 through 445, with illustrations. The German gynecologist Christian Friedrich Schatz (1841-1920) was rector of the University of Rostock and was appointed full professor in 1872. Schatz became director of the Clinic for Obstetrics and Gynecology and the head of the State Midwifery Institute in Rostock. He distinguished himself through publications on the birth mechanism, intrauterine pressure measurements, the periodicity of labor and placental studies. Good .
