The weekly journal "Javor" ("Maple") was published in Novi Sad, during the period from 1862 to 1893. In the volume of 1877 the article "Something concerning war and medical care" was published in six parts. The article expressed views of organization of military medical service based on experiences in all major wars in the 19th century (the Crimean War, the war between Prussia and Austria, the Civil War in North America, the war between Prussia and France). The article is not signed. It can be assumed with sufficient certainty that the author of the article could be Dr. Vladan Djordjević (1844-1930) surgeon, chief of military sanitation, historian, writer and distinguished Serbian politician.
