For many years members of our Society and scores of others here and abroad, with generous financial aid from many sources, have pursued research and published the results in miniscule detail. Many also have worked abroad in various public health and medical programs. The ultimate goal was to unravel Nature's secrets and benefit mankind, especially in the less developed parts of the world. The “rich” U.S. Government, 400 billion in debt, scores of foundations, solvent World Health Organization, industry, and the Church have participated in these activities. It is of these matters that I will speak after some 47 years of observing and participating in them. I shall give names of persons and countries only in connection with successes.

At the age of 24 I was the minor member, the Benjamin, of a hookworm research group, Rockefeller-supported, on the way to Nicaragua.
