The Brazilian Society of Pathology (SBP) was founded on August 5, 1954, during the Brazilian Seminar of Pathology, at the Meeting Room of the Medical Association of Paraná, in Curitiba. The founder table was made by Professors Amadeu Fialho, Luigi Bogliolo, Moacyr Amorim de Freitas, Paulo de Queiroz Telles Tibiriçá and Atys Quadros da Silva, the secretary of purpose. The presidency was exercised by Professor Amadeu Fialho who founded the "Brazilian Society of Pathologists", on 1993 and total 32 pathologists signed the official minutes of the foundation, becoming founding members of SBP.
Consultation with SBP files allows to observe interesting passages of the foundation 's work. The great articulator of the SBP organization was Dr. Atys Quadros da Silva. It is amazing the number of letters to pen and ink to all pathologists in activity and especially to the country 's main pathology teachers. It should be noted that even before the SBP foundation, there were several organized groups of pathologists. In 1953, the Pathology Department of the Paulista Medical Association was active and there were annual meetings of veterinary pathology, since 1944. The work of Dr. Atys began with a questionnaire sent to all Brazilian pathologists in August 1953, and at the end of the year about 80 colleagues had responded positively to the idea of holding a seminar. It is very interesting that the pathologists list of each state is preserved in the archives, being able to establish the first pathologists to register the country. Once established these first steps, Dr. Atys started to organize the scientific event, which was sponsored by the Dean of the University of Paraná with Week name Pathologic Clinical Debates, 1st. Brazilian Seminar on Pathological Anatomy. Among the material from our archive there are some very precious letters. There are exchanges of letters between Dr. Atys boards and some of the most distinguished Brazilian teachers deserve any special review. We emphasize here the dialogue between Dr Atys and Prof. Amadeu Fialho, initially reluctant to the idea of the workshop and foundation of SBP, but that resulted in the Presidency of the Foundress Table Prof. Amadeu Fialho. The associative spirit of Dr. Atys can be witnessed when he writes in a letter dated 9 February 1954 and addressed to Prof. Amadeu Fialho: ... of many who wish to see a Brazilian company of pathology, I am possibly one of those who have more time to write, annotate, stress and so on. So I was with the charge to me is pleasurable, trying to join the Brazilian pathologists in an organization that is needed. It may have not been very kind, and very delicate, or has not had much tact here and there (that I have explained to Prof. Bogliolo that is his great friend). However the intention is not to hurt or create cases. Rather, it is to make the approach of a class of experts ... "
Among the many concerns with the emerging new society, there were suggestions that closely resemble that today we discussed in our meeting the Executive Board as the value of the annuity, the formation of a scientific journal of unquestionable scientific merit, the congress program, the representation with other Pathology Societies of Foreign Affairs and others. It's amazing the amount of change of the original program for the last minute impossibilities of the speakers, the refusal of others and even requirements of other teachers.
The balance sheet of the Company's training brings other interesting information. The inscription on the journey cost Cr $ 50.00 per participant and only organization of material, not counting the cost of the event was spent Cr $ 3,649.80. Unfortunately we could not find the record of how many participants attended the seminar, but judging yourself by letters congratulating the success of the effort was achieved. The first annuity SBP was set at Cr $ 300.00. The first board election took place on 6 August 1954. Once installed , the Assembly requested the floor Prof. Barretto Netto that according to the original minutes, "... historiou professional activities of Prof. Amadeu Fialho, saying its pioneering condition of the anatomy-pathological in Brazil, the difficulties and obstacles that it has encountered for the dissemination of expertise in the country and also the success achieved in spite of all the obstacles, success this that enabled spread of specialty and interest of our doctors for the same and conditioned, of course, the success of the initial meeting in Curitiba and the foundation of the Brazilian Society of Pathologists. He proposed then, Prof. Barretto Netto that, in recognition of the services rendered by Prof. Amadeu Fialho the cause of Pathology in Brazil, was the same acclaimed Honorary President of the Brazilian Society of Pathologists. The proposal has been received and accepted by long applause by the Assembly, which thus meant unrestricted approval to the proposal made ... ". Next, the Assembly elected the first Board of SBP that was constituted as follows: President: Dr. Paul Tibiriçá; Vice-President: Dr. Manoel Barretto Netto; General Secretary: Dr. Atys Quadros da Silva; Treasurer: Dr. Armando Tramujas; Advisory Board: Prof. Moacyr de Freitas Amorim, Prof. Constantino Mignone and Professor Luigi Bogliolo; Supervisory Board Prof. Raymundo Barros Coelho, Prof. Walter Maffei and Prof. Augusto Colli. Once in office Dr. Paul Tibiriçá appointed Dr. Gorki Mecking from Lima to the post of Secretary. Finally, the Assembly approved the proposal of Prof. Moacyr de Freitas Amorim to make Prof. Rocha Lima as an honorary associate of the SBP. The foundation of the SBP was recognized by the Brazilian Medical Association in a letter dated November 24, 1954.Read More»
