Charles Franklin Craig was still very much alive in the 1940s when I was already well started on a career in parasitology. His research and his classic books on malaria and other parasitic protozoa and on mosquitoes and other vectors had a pervasive influence on me, as on all parasitologists. And so I am very grateful to the Society for this honor of giving the lecture bearing Dr. Craig's name. Furthermore, as it turns out, this has provided me with an unusual opportunity.

It is not often that one has the good fortune to be able to speak about one's lifelong interest at the same time that the subject is attracting widespread attention. I have always enjoyed growing things. Even as a schoolboy with an interest in insects, collecting them seemed to me a relatively dull sport compared with raising them.
