Abstract

This resource 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 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.
