See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

During the discussion in the Senate on Senator Ransdell’s bill to establish a national health institute, Senator Ransdell spoke highly of the late Dr. Joseph Goldberger, discoverer of the cause and cure of pellagra. Senator Ransdell recently introduced a bill for a pension to the widow of the late Dr. Goldberger.

Senator Copeland of New York stated : “I trust the Senate will not forget what the Senator has said about Dr. Goldberger. There is pending in the Senate certain relief legislation which should be given serious attention by the Senators. What Dr. Goldberger contributed to humanity has been worth millions to the United States of America. He was indeed, as the Senator said, a true martyr to science.”
