The history of tularemia makes fascinating study. It is, in every respect, "the first American disease." The physicians of this country should be thrilled by the thought that not only was this disease discovered by American investigators, but also because its specific etiologic agent, the determination of its modes of transmission from animal to animal and from animal to man, the descriptions of its clinical manifestations and its pathology and bacteriology, were made known by American workers. And leading all, as the guiding spirit which has made this accomplishment possible, is Edward Francis, of the United States Public Health Service.
