The article “Anesthesiology: Resetting Our Sights on Long-term Outcomes: The 2020 John W. Severinghaus Lecture on Translational Science” describes the Ether Monument as if it were located in the Boston Common, the oldest city park in the United States. This is not correct. The Ether Monument is located in the Public Garden near the intersection of Beacon and Arlington Streets. Although these two spaces are adjacent to each other, only separated by Charles Street, they are two distinct parks. I hope this clarification helps steer visitors in the right direction to admire perhaps the most visible symbol of our specialty.
