Wallace O. Fenn (1893-1971) The proceedings of the satellite sym­ encompass the whole of physiology.

Dr. Fenn had agreed to be baric study. honorary conference chairman of this meet­ The study of muscle contraction started ing, but was unable to attend because of the in 1922 when Fenn became the first American to work in A. V. Hill's laboratory. Fenn illness from which he died two months later concluded this work by saying, " ... There on September 20, 1971. Wallace O.
