In 1966 I presented a short paper describing some impressions of the status of vertebrate comparative anatomy (and embryology) in European universities (Goellner, 1968). Discussions which followed seemed to suggest that the status of these courses in the United States may be changing, and that a survey might elicit information on this matter. A basic assumption was implied, namely, that comparative anatomy had, indeed, been a traditional course in college offerings, particularly for zoology majors and for pre-medical and pre-dental students. This paper presents results of a modest survey conducted during the winter of 1969-70.
