General facts

In 1925, on the occasion of the Olympic Educational Congress, an ad hoc Medical Committee was set up, the present President of the Association being its Chairman. This Committee desired to continue its work on a permanent footing, but was unable to do so. The idea was again taken up by Dr. Dybowsky, of Lemberg, Dr. Mallwitz, of Germany, and Dr. Knoll, of Switzerland, in the spring of 1927, and the Association was founded at St. Moritz at the time of the second Olympic Winter Sports. (HB 1929)
