Mr. President, Ladies, and Gentlemen:

It is a signal honor for me to present this year's Charles Franklin Craig Lecturer. I have known Dr. Schmidt for some 16 years; we worked together during the World War II malaria program and afterwards. During this period, my respect and admiration for him increased continually. During the wartime program, he accumulated and forwarded to other workers data on the basic pharmacology of many potential antimalarials, and these data formed the basis for the safe use of the drugs in human trials. Reports of the trials were frequently published with merely an acknowledgment to him before he had had the opportunity to publish the detailed studies. Mention is made of this because such magnanimity is not always appreciated, or is forgotten. Those of us who were recipients have not forgotten, but if we had forgotten, his other contributions would have won for him the same honor the Society is bestowing on him today.
