Members and guests of The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene:

Each of the 31 years since 1936 the Society has taken cognizance of its debt to and esteem for Col. Charles Franklin Craig. This recognition has followed the form of a named lecture presented by one whose selection not only reminds the Society of Col. Craig's contribution to tropical medicine, but also serves as formal recognition of the accomplishments of the Lecturer himself. The 32nd-year's participant in this two-way reaction is Dr. G. Robert Coatney.

Dr. Coatney is so well known to this audience that introducing him presents serious problems, analogous in some respects to presenting President Lyndon B. Johnson to the United States Senate. Few members have played more different roles in the affairs of the Society than this year's Craig Lecturer—and I might add, none with more enthusiasm and distinction.
