Download PDF for this date

With the issuance, during the past week, of the ninth volume of “Contributions to the Knowledge of Tuberculosis”, the National Jewish Hospital at Denver makes another imposing addition to the literature of tuberculosis.

The Research Department is administered by a national and local Research Board. Dr. Alfred Meyer of Mt. Sinai Hospital, New York City, is president of the National Board, and Dr. John F. Anderson of the United States Public Health Service of Washington, as vice-president. Other members of the National Research Board are Dr. John A. Kolmer, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine; Dr. S. S. Goldwater, Mt. Sinai Hospital, New York City; Dr. Morris Fishbein, Chicago, Illinois and Dr. Henry Sewall, Denver, Colorado.

Volume Nine of the “Contributions” embodies studies and scientific investigations made during the past year by members of the research and clinical staffs of the Hospital as well as others affiliated with the work of the Institution. It contains twenty-three articles of scientific significance and historic value in the field of tuberculosis.

When, in 1919, the National Jewish Hospital established its Research Department, under whose auspices these volumes have been issued, it set as the Department’s goal the ultimate discovery of a specific cure for Tuberculosis. This Research Department, being operated and maintained by a national Jewish philanthropic organization, became, and still is, the only one of its kind in the world.

Members of the local Research Board, all of whom are residents of Denver, include Dr. Robert Levy, chairman, Dr. Saling Simon, secretary and Dr. Henry Sewall.

“Contributions to the Knowledge of Tuberculosis” is published under the direction of Dr. H. J. Corper, Director of Research of the National Jewish Hospital, and the majority of the scientific papers contained therein describe the investigative work which has been done in the Research Department of the Hospital. Scientific studies by Dr. I. D. Bronfin, Medical Director of the Hospital and Dr. Saling Simon, member of the Medical Advisory Board, based on work done in the Medical Department of the Hospital, form an important part of the latest volume.
