This is a record of the splendid work done in Michigan against tuberculosis in 1909-1910. It is a strong appeal for substantial encouragement in the work, made by setting out graphically and forcibly the tremendous expense of this preventable disease and the resulting loss to the state in dollars as well as in lives. This pamphlet contains several valuable papers on the management and methods of eradication of the disease, with illustrations of tents and tent colonies for the outdoor treatment, as well as reports from the local associations in the state, and a synopsis of what has been accomplished in the way of state and local sanitary legislation. There are many suggestions that should be of value to other state associations pursuing this work.
