I am pleased that there is a lecture series to recall the work of Fred Soper. We should look back more frequently to review the work of the giants of the past who make our present work possible. And I am pleased that this year I am the one able to revisit Fred Soper.

My plan today is to review a few items regarding Fred Soper's life and then ask the difficult question of how he might approach our problems. How might he formulate a national agenda for international health?

Fred Soper. For those who don't know about him, Fred Soper was born 96 years ago yesterday in Kansas. He took his training in Chicago, but very quickly this midwesterner became a globalist and an expert in the international health problems of the day. How do people remember Soper?
