Thirty years later, the ASTM merged with the National Malaria Society (NMS) and the two organizations together became what is now known as the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH). In 1952 they published Volume 1 of the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (AJTMH). The archived journals of the National Malaria Society can be found here.
