“B. J.” as Dr. Stanhope Bayne-Jones is known by his friends around the world, has a valid and consuming interest in both military and civilian preventive medicine, stemming from his ancestry, his own distinguished military and academic career, plus the stimulus received from Hans F. Zinnser. He is a descendant of the great Joseph Jones of New Orleans and the Confederate Army Medical Service. As a boy, B. J. spent some time with his uncle, Dr. William Crawford Gorgas, in the Canal Zone during the epochal conquest of yellow fever and malaria that permitted the successful construction of the Panama Canal.

With great clarity and charm Dr. Bayne-Jones has provided a most readable, beautifully illustrated, historical narrative. For a period of over 4 years, and from original documents available in the incomparable libraries in the nation's capital, the author compiled and prepared this important, enjoyable, meticulously referenced, and annotated little classic.
