The educational value to a community of a scientifically arranged and conducted exhibit such as that of the baby-saving show held by the Child Hygiene Association of Philadelphia in 1912 is inestimable. The influence of that exhibit and the conference on infant hygiene held in connection with it extended far beyond the community in which it was held. Similar shows employing portions of the exhibit at Philadelphia were held in various cities through the state, showing the interest created by the Philadelphia show. This beautifully printed report gives in detail, with an abundance of illustrations, the various features of the baby-saving show, together with the papers and discussions at the accompanying conference. It constitutes a valuable record and a guide to other communities in preparing for similar educational exhibits, and its wide circulation would distinctly advance the cause of infant hygiene.
