This booklet presents a historical account of the development and organization of the American Sanatorium Association, now known as the American Trudeau Society. Included is a record of its meetings and transactions since the establishment in 1905, giving not only a list of committees and their functions, papers, discussions and other activities, but also the names of physicians who have taken a prominent part in the work of the association. As these events and activities unfold, the reader will gain a clearer understanding of the progress that has been made in the sanatorium field since the turn of the century. The booklet will be of interest to physicians associated with sanatorium services as well as to others who are concerned in the treatment and care of those with tuberculosis.
