Fellow Members of the American Society of Tropical Medicine, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen:

Introduction. I am glad to have this opportunity to thank you for selecting me as your President and to assure you that I appreciate the honor of serving at this Forty-Second Annual Meeting.

This should be an important meeting, for it comes at the most critical period in history—a period when decent people everywhere are rejoicing over the end of World War II and are planning hopefully, but fearfully, for a firm, lasting peace.

It is our second meeting since V-J Day, but the first to be held during the new Atomic Era. As you know, this Era is characterized by a general fear that civilization may be destroyed through the misuse of atomic power and by serious doubts as to whether man has the intelligence to control this new power peacefully and safeguard his own future.
