The British Journal of Anaesthesia: Its Evolution to the Present Position

  • A. A. Spence

Abstract

The British Journal of Anaesthesia was launched in 1923, and it is certainly worthy of record that its instigator and first editor, H. N. Cohen, was an American. He had married an Englishwoman and had settled in Manchester, where he practised anaesthesia. There is every sign that his predominant interest was the promotion of the specialty in his new country; the introductory editorial (July 1923) called for a greater organization of the specialty in the United Kingdom, a corporate association of anaesthetists and a diploma examination, although it was some years before these wishes were to be fulfilled.
