G. GILL RICHARDS, M.D., F.A.C.P.
Credit for the first clinical description of tularemia is due to R. A. Pearce, a country practitioner of Brigham City, Utah, although only a single reference to his work has been found in subsequent reports of this disease. At the annual meeting of the Utah State Medical Society in Salt Lake City, October 3, 1910, he described six cases which he had observed during 1908, and he stated that he had seen 10 others during 1910. An autopsy on the one fatal case was reported as showing a septic meningitis secondary to a horse fly bite on the face.
