A valuable addition to epidemiologic literature has just been made in the publication by the Surgeon General of the Army, under a special appropriation by Congress, of the full text of a report on the Origin and Spread of Typhoid Fever in U. S. Military Camps During the Spanish War of 1898. This report was the work of a board of three men whose attainments were commensurate with the magnitude of the task undertaken by them. Of these, by a singular fatality, two have since died. Walter Reed, major and surgeon, U. S. Army, has won the fame and the gratitude of humanity by his work on yellow fever. He died Nov. 23, 1902. Dr. Edward 0. Shakespeare of Philadelphia, major and brigade surgeon, U. S. Vols., is well known to the scientific world by his contributions to medical science and especially by his report to the U. S. Government
