THOMAS FRANCIS JR., M.D.
It has been my privilege on several occasions in the past 20 years to review before The American College of Physicians the status of knowledge of influenza. The studies of influenza, a disease of fearful history, represented, in many ways, the opening wedge in the dissection of that large body of common respiratory disease of probable viral etiology. The investigations have required the continuous close integration of clinical, epidemiologic and laboratory investigation to gain understanding of an extremely complex problem, and have contributed extensively to the philosophy and methodology necessary for further clarification of the entire field of respiratory disease.
