Washington Humane Society

This article details a law proposed in 1896 to regulate vivisection in D.C. started by the Washington Humane Society. I haven't been able to see if the law passed, but it looks like not.
I sent this and few other articles to a friend at the Washington Humane Society and they will be used as a reference in making an official history of the organization.

This controversy spilled over into the Medical Museum which was accused of practicing vivisection. On Monday, I'll try to find the relevant information.
