In 1920, the School of Hygiene and Public Health of Johns Hopkins University instituted its lectures in hygiene to carry out the wishes expressed by the will of Joseph R. De Lamar to give to the people of the United States generally the benefits of increased knowledge concerning the prevention of sickness and disease, and also concerning conservation of health by proper food and diet. It is impossible in the space of a brief review to list all these lectures or to discuss them critically. They are all by writers recognized as experts in the fields concerned, and they discuss such important problems as industrial disease, cancer, rural hygiene, longevity, the body-constitution, prevention of accidents and similar topics. The importance of these lectures is such that one would wish some plan had been devised for much wider circulation than is likely to be secured by mere collection in book form.
