This beautifully bound book contains the full proceedings of a three-day Conference sponsored by The Harvard School of Public Health, attended by 37 delegates representing 23 industries, 9 of which are oil, 11 invited guests, and a good portion of the School faculty.

While the general theme of the Conference was “Industry and Tropical Health”, the addresses and comments of the more than fifty participants, of necessity, at times went somewhat afield of the main theme.

The first four sessions, with corresponding chapters in the book, were organized around the major health problems peculiar to the Middle East, Tropical Africa, the Far East, and Tropical America respectively.

The remainder of the sessions were organized around topics of more general interest, and applicable on a more universal basis, though with particular reference to tropical areas. These include such matters as The Organization of Industrial Health Services, The Use of Antibiotics in Certain Tropical Diseases, Nutrition, General Problems of Infectious Disease Control, and Various Aspects of Industrial Health Hazards.
