In the immediately preceding paper1 of this series, the section of this report dealing with geographical distribution of pellagra was begun by a detailed study of the relation of pellagra to domicile in Spartan Mills. That community was regarded as a fairly typical cotton mill village, but nevertheless it presented certain individual peculiarities. It was situated within the limits of a fairly large city. It was one of the oldest mills in the county. It possessed an organized social service for education of the people and a good hospital for the care of the employees.
