4th International Congress of Neuropathology 1961


4th – 8th September 1961
Munich, West Germany

‘Our tradition is something of which we may well be proud, but let us convey more of our enthusiasm abroad in order to recruit new explorers. Regardless of the speciality each of us practices, there is an impelling force that motivates us all; it was expressed simply by that great Norwegian explorer and statesman, Fridtjof Nansen: “The history of the human race is a continual struggle from darkness toward light. . . . Man wants to know, and when he ceases to do so, he is no longer man.”‘

– from Webb Haymaker’s presidential address, 1961
