"This is a memorable day in the history of American pediatrics. The founding of the Academy will have a far-reaching significance in developing the scope and field of pediatrics and, I hope, a beneficent influence on the life and health of those patients whom the pediatricians will reach" Issac A. Abt, from the first presidential address of the American Academy of Pediatrics on June 12, 1931.(Submitted on May 6, 2021, by J.T. Lambrou of New Boston, Michigan.)
