Modern Chemotherapy of Tuberculosis. By Roger S. Mitchell, M.D., and J. Carroll Bell, M.S. Price, $4. Pp. 109. Medical Encyclopedia, Inc., 30 E. 60th St., New York 22, 1958.
By chance these two volumes arrived together; between them one has a panorama of the treatment of tuberculosis in America between 1895 and 1958. "The Story of White Haven" is a highly personal memoire, written by Frank A. Craig about his old sanatorium and his mentor, Lawrence F. Flick. Flick was one of a number of the unsung heroes of the early antituberculosis campaign. A man of vision, zeal, and dogged determination, which his enemies called "stubborness," he founded the first state Tuberculosis Society in America (Pennsylvania, 1892), the Rush Hospital (1895), the White Haven Sanatorium (1901), and the Henry Phipps Institute (1903) and was one of the founders of the National Tuberculosis and Health Association (1904). Dr. Craig's reminiscences recall.
