The starting point of this paper is rather arbitrarily set at January, 1942, but the selection of this date also has some significance in the knowledge of malaria. Much of the world had just become involved in a great war and was being confronted with problems in disease control relative to the military. Of these diseases by far the most important was malaria.

The following is concerned mainly with human malaria and is not intended to be a comprehensive review of the field but rather of those developments which appear to me to be significant.

Of the tremendous amount of work that has gone on in the malaria of lower animals, reference will be made only to such as is particularly relevant to human malaria or that which can serve for comparison to point up the particular discussion at hand.
