Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes has tendered his resignation as Parkman professor of anatomy in the Medical School of Harvard University. At the request of the officers of the board of government it will be permitted to remain in abeyance until satisfactory arrangements can be made for permanently filling the vacancy, and for the present the doctor will continue with his lectures to the first class of the school, which is the only one that comes under his department of instruction. His retirement is not enforced by ill health or the inaptitude sometimes incident to increasing years, but is induced by his desire to give attention hereafter more particularly to literary pursuits. Dr. Holmes has held the position for more than thirty years.
