The story of the accomplishments of Dr. Joseph Goldberger should by this time be well known to most members of the medical profession. His life was devoted largely to study of infectious diseases made under the auspices of the United States Public Health Service, but the climax of his career came with his basic contributions to our knowledge of pellagra. The book is based largely on letters which Dr. Goldberger wrote to his wife over some twenty-three years and on collections of newspaper clippings and other memorandums which had been assembled in a chest which was made available to the biographer. Dr. Goldberger's career might well serve as an inspiration to young men who contemplate work with the United States Public Health Service as a career.
