DWIGHT O'HARA, F.A.C.P.
Many of you are familiar with a series of articles now being printed in the New England Journal of Medicine under the heading, "Fifty Years of Medical Progress." A subheading appears with each article which places its treatment in one of two categories: medicine as a science, or medicine as a social instrument. This differentiation provides a helpful approach for many of the subjects with which we concern ourselves. Within such a classification, industrial health may be considered as a social instrument as well as a science, and it is with this viewpoint that I undertake its present consideration.
