This first Microbiological Monograph of the Society of American Bacteriologists presents results released by the Biological Warfare Service on investigations of experimental air-borne disease. The work was forecast in the original proposal of a project, published in the Journal of Immunology a few months ago. Between December 1943 and October 1945 Dr. Rosebury, with eleven co-authors and sixteen mentioned assistants, conducted investigations on air-borne infection at Camp Detrick, Maryland.
