The kind interest with which my first report in 1897 and my second report in 1902 on the tuberculosis problem in the United States was received by the members of the Section on Hygiene and Sanitary Science and of the American profession at large encourages me again to give a bird's-eye view of what is being done in our country in the combat of the great white plague.
