J Am Med Assoc. 1919;73(1):52-54: The Propaganda for Reform ...to Oppose Medical Fraud on the Public and on the Profession. THE ALLIED MEDICAL ASSOCIATIONS OF AMERICA: Another Rocket in the Pyrotechnics of Quasi-Medical Organizations. ... It is not surprising, then, that those who live and move in the twilight zone of professionalism, from visionaries riding bizarre medical hobbies to those who have special interests to exploit, should create and make use of hybrid medical organizations. Such organizations multiply with the fecundity of rabbits. They flourish for a while, obtain more or less newspaper and other publicity—-usually more, because of the sensational methods of those controlling them—-then, having served the purpose of those who brought them into being, they lapse into innocuous desuetude. The official accouchement of the Allied Medical Associations of America occurred, according to that organization's report, May 18, 1918. On the official stationery of the Allied Medical Associations of America in use in May, 1919, we find the names of the "Officers," "Censors," etc. These constitute, presumably, the more prominent members of this organization. We give briefly, some data regarding some of these so that a rational perspective may be obtained : L. M. Ottofy, M.D., St. Louis, Mo.--Dr. Ottofy seems to have been the chief organizer, if not, indeed, the founder. He has been its "Secretary-Treasurer" since its inception ; he is also "editor" of its journal. Ottofy, according to our records, was born in 1865 at Budapest, Hungary, and was graduated in 1888 by the Homeopathic Medical College of Missouri. In Polk's Medical Directories for 1914 and 1917, Ottofy has those extended notices which any physician can obtain who cares to pay for it. ...
