[Furman, Ala: the author, 1915. Printed circular. Single sheet, folded to 28 x 22 cm., (3) pp. of text printed in double columns, final page blank. Old fold lines, short split across one column of text slightly affecting a few letters, closed tear at upper margin not affecting text. Some overall fading to print, a few (presumably contemporary) manuscript changes to text. A good, somewhat tender copy. The author discusses changes to the health system and health board being proposed in the state legislature, and the two competing bills, the Shapiro Bill, and the so-called "Modified Gorgas Bill." He states that the name of Dr. William Crawford Gorgas [a native of Alabama and at the time Surgeon General of the U.S. Army, well known for his work in discovering the causes of yellow fever and malaria] has been co-opted by certain factions in the legislature, "for the name of Gorgas would carry influence." Dr. William Bradley Palmer, from Furman, was a member of the Medical Association of the State of Alabama, and Health Officer for Wilcox County. No listings found on OCLC. (Inventory #: 61070)
