The archive of the Tokyo University Medical School Library includes personal effects of Professor M. Ota. Recently a letter has been found that was addressed to Ota in 1944 when he was a professor at Tokyo University and the chairman of Japan Dermatological Association. It was written by Professor I. Miyake at Kumamoto University. This unpublished letter reveals to us the era and the situations surrounding the 44th Annual Meeting of JDA, whose program was carried out only on its journal.
