As an organized and accepted art and science, microscopy may be considered as one of the more recent additions to the engineering field. Although the literature cites applications other than biological in the early eighteenth century, microscopy from an engineering, industrial, and research standpoint has made its greatest strides through the last three decades. Unfortunately, microscopy as a science has been very loosely organized and fragments of its applications must be gleaned from many sources. The purpose of the 1952 Light Microscopy Symposium has been to bring together people interested in the various phases of this important field and present the results of more recent advancements. In a limited session it has been difficult to present papers covering all fields of interest. However, a number of specific fields have been covered and it will be found that many of the new methods discussed are usable in more than the original specific application.
