The first decennial report of the Lymanhurst School for Tuberculous Children is a welcome contribution to modern tuberculosis literature. It sets a worthy example for others to follow. It is not common in large cities for civic spirit and unselfishness to dominate and harmonize the efforts of several large departments in a city government with so much net profit. For this concerted effort, great credit is no doubt due to the initiative of Dr. F. E. Harrington, commissioner of health of Minneapolis, to the organization and execution of the work by Dr. J. A. Myers, and to the efforts of numerous able men and women listed on their various staffs, the personnels of which leave little to be desired. Beginning as a school for tuberculous children, the work has grown to include, as well, a large outpatient department of patients, contacts and suspects.
