The National Medical Association met in Washington D.C.  The main item of business was the appointment of a committee of nine physicians to meet in Philadelphia to help with the 1860 reform of the United States Pharmacopeia.  The U.S. P. had been founded in 1820 and medical association representatives, along with Army and Navy Surgeons General, met to revise the list of sanctioned medicines at each following ten year interval.  (By John Osborne)
