The Natural History of Disease in Baltimore, Maryland1

    Naturevolume 115page659 (1925) | Download Citation



    THE publication before us forms one of the admirable reports issued by the Carnegie Institution of Washington, and therefore calls for attention. It purports to trace the development of public health in one of the oldest cities in the States, and to correlate, so far as practicable, the ascertainable factors bearing on the natural history of disease in that city during a span of more than a century. The attempt is made in nearly 600 pages, beset with elaborate statistical tables and a number of graphs, which have been reduced to an extent which makes them partially illegible.
