Since its founding in 1957, the World Federation of Neurology (WFN) has been deeply integrated in the development of international collaboration in the field of neurology, and has played a key part in asserting with dissemination of information and the need to learn from each other, independent of political systems, but with a basis in the development of democracy worldwide.
This book covers the history of the WFN from its founding in Brussels in 1957 to the present day. Written by a former President and long-standing officer of the WFN, The History of the World Federation of Neurology chronicles the formation and expansion of the WFN, the development of its structure and various committees, and the evolution of its global biennial meeting, the World Congress of Neurology. Sections of the text focus on the key neurologists involved in the development of the WFN, including Houston Merritt, Pearce Bailey Jr, and Ludo van Bogaert, to name but a few, as well as the history of its educational publications, including World Neurology and Journal of the Neurological Sciences.
