It is always rewarding and pleasurable to attend the Annual Meeting of the Society. But the pleasure takes on an added dimension when one has the very satisfying task and privilege to introduce a colleague who has been an outstanding intellectual force in the development of our discipline. The Craig Lectureship was initiated by our Society in 1936 to honor Col. Charles Franklin Craig who so strongly stimulated and influenced studies on tropical medicine and parasitology in the United States. This year's selection committee, consisting of Drs. Irwin Sherman, Jordi Casals-Ariet and myself had no difficulty in rapidly reaching agreement that Dr. William Trager's nomination to be the forty-first Craig Lecturer would pay high honor to Col. Craig's memory.

Dr. Trager received his doctorate in 1933 from Harvard University and for the next 40-odd years made his professional home at Rockefeller University.
