Unknown fevers first encountered by white immigrants in the Rocky Mountain region between 1850 and 1873 have become of constantly increasing clinical interest and public health moment due to recent discoveries of new and widened endemic areas, and to the involved medical problems now more fully appreciated.
Scientific study of fevers in the Rocky Mountain region began clinically in 1880, epidemiologically and pathologically in 1902, bacteriologically in 1906, immunologically in 1908, and preventively in 1911. These studies have so increased rather than narrowed the fields of inquiry that much of what has been written has had to be rewritten from
