"Welch gave this address on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the first public demonstration of ether anesthesia at Massachusetts General Hospital...Welch described how the discovery of anesthesia epitomized the ideal and enhanced the practicality of experimental medicine... "In this address, Welch also discussed the value of the drug 'curara' in a 'certain class of animal experiments.' He noted its pain-relieving property in some 'spasmodic affections' and likened the recognition of its value primarily to the contributions of physiology. This appreciation occurred almost half a century before Griffith and Johnson ascertained the value of curare to anesthesia."-Sim, The Heritage of Anesthesia, p. 149.
