History

The Innominate Society of Louisville was founded on February 9, 1926 by
a group of 12 young Louisville physicians interested in medical history.

These young physicians decided to form this group to present papers on
interesting aspects of medical history.

The Society meets at the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky on the
second Tuesday of each month during the academic year.  During these
meetings papers on interesting aspects of medical history are given on a
rotational basis.  The papers are then routinely discussed by the members
and their guests.

During the spring of the year, the Society invites an authority on medical
history to deliver an address.  This address is called the T.  Cook Smith
Lecture and is named in commemoration of the loss of the first charter
Member.

This site is to present those papers to the general public for there
information and use.
