The Harvey Society was founded in 1905 by thirteen New York scientists and physicians with the purpose of forging a "closer relationship between the purely practical side of medicine and the results of laboratory investigation." The Society distributes scientific knowledge in selected areas of anatomy, physiology, pathology, bacteriology, pharmacology, and physiological and pathological chemistry through public lectures, which are published annually.

Series 94, 1998-1999 covers themes in neurogenetic studies, the role of tyrosine phosphorylation in cell growth and disease, the biology of the epidermis and its appendages, and the phenotypic diversity of monogenic disease.
