History need not deal with the dim, dusty, and dull past. In fact, one of the problems in writing about lithium use in psychiatry is that almost all the researchers are still around and being tough, resilient characters are likely to contradict anything I write which they don’t like. John Cade visited the United States last year; Mogens Schou belongs to our Denghausen group which goes off to the Caribbean each year; Sivadon in France and Vojtěchovský and Hanzliček in Prague are regular correspondents; Vartanian from Moscow visited me the very week that this chapter was started; and Gershon, another of the authors who published during those first 10 or 11 years, is an editor of this volume.
