How it all began...
"I am aware that there are so many meetings these days that it is almost impossible to attend them all...but there is a lack of a common meeting ground where university cardiologists can discuss problems with which they are most concerned--clinical research and clinical cardiology.
I have therefore been giving some thought during the past ten years as to whether or not it would be a good idea to develop an association of university cardiologists for academic people who are directly connected with universities."
