    Notes: “The delegation won the Acting Surgeon General over to the idea of [a Sanitary Commission]. On May 22 he recommended to Secretary of War Cameron the creation by the government of ‘a commission of inquiry and advise . . . to act in cooperation with the bureau.’ Dr Wood went so far as to suggest that the proposed commission consist of a medical officer and five distinguished citizens, two of whom should be members of the delegation from New York. The men proposed were the Reb. Henry W. Bellows, D.D., Prof. Alexander Dallas Bache, LL.D, Prof. Wolcott Gibbs, M.D., Jeffries Wyman, M.D., and W.H. Van Buren, M.D.”
