pg 179-180, full text
In 1895 the Iowa Medical Journal again appeared with Dr J.W. Kime of Fort Dodge as editor. The first number bears the date April, 1895. The editor states: "The plan of this journal is somewhat unique in medical journalism. It will be edited in a number of independent departments, each having its own special editor and collaborators and will be expressly for the profession of Iowa, its columns being open only to the physicians of this state through collaboration will be made from every available source. The Journal will be edited in ten departments, practically covering the fielf of medicine and surgery."

The first volume contained 710 pages and presented a very creditable appearance showing that the editor was well fitted for the undertaking. Dr. Kime, in July 1900 on account of other interests transferred the Journal to Dr. E.E. Dorr of Des Moines.
