Thirty-five individuals have delivered an address to this Society in honor of Charles Franklin Craig, a pioneer among pioneers in tropical medicine, a prolific contributor to the scientific literature, a distinguished officer in the medical corps of the United States Army, a tireless and devoted member of this Society who edited many volumes of our journal. Doctors Simmons and Bass wrote eloquent tributes in the special memorial issue of the journal in 1952, tributes which should be read by all who belong to the Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. Instead of trying to embellish or repeat what has been written about Doctor Craig, I shall begin with a few comments about the annual Craig addresses themselves. Regrettably from my point of view, I have not been present when the previous Craig lectures were delivered. Consequently, in preparation for this talk today, I analyzed the published versions of the addresses—an exercise which has been very illuminating to me personally.
