Letter from Kermit T. Mehlinger, MD, president, Cook County Physicians' Association,

to Dr. Leonidas H. Berry, about the exclusion of African American models and subjects in advertisements, commenting that the current National Medical Association journal has 21 advertisements with white models exclusively, and only one with African American models, but not integrated; and attaches a Bayer ad that features six white nurses with the title, "All registered nurses are alike"
