Sentinel for health : a history of the Centers for Disease Control by Elizabeth W Etheridge( )

13 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 1,792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Etheridge chronicles the evolution of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) from its modest beginnings to its current status as one of the foremost health institutions in the world. It actually started as a temporary unit of the U.S. Public Health Service to lead the effort to control malaria during World War II. Located from the outset in Atlanta, it soon expanded its efforts to other communicable diseases and began providing services directly to the states. Through the vision and perseverance of its leadership it continued acting on an ever larger scale and in 1973 became a full agency of the Public Health Service, which has come to include centers for chronic disease, environmental issues, health statistics, and prevention services in addition to a center for infectious diseases. The volume also covers the personalities, events, social environment, and political forces that helped shape the reputation of this distinguished institution. ISBN 0-520-07107-7: $42.50
The butterfly caste : a social history of pellagra in the South by Elizabeth W Etheridge( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a medical detective story of the search for a killer. Pellagra, the disease of the four Ds: diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia, and death, was epidemic in the Southern United States in the early part of this century. The often fatal disease was characterized by the dramatic stigmata of an ugly red "butterfly" across the nose and a symmetrical skin rash on the extremities. Although it has been described and studied by European physicians as early as 1735, and pellagroid symptoms had long been identified in this country, pellagra was not acknowledged as a discrete disease until 1907. In that year an epidemic broke out in an asylum in Alabama. Reports of other cases quickly followed, and within a few years pellagra was pandemic in the South. The search for the killer was on, but it would be many years before the cause could be isolated and a cure found. In 1914, Dr. Joseph Goldberger, a United States Public Health Service physician, became director of the PHS pellagra research program. This book traces his efforts to identify the culprit responsible for this disease and ultimately to find the cure in 1937 that would help to eliminate it

Criteria for Reconstitution of Forces( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report describes a study undertaken to provide assistance to commanders of units in combat in evaluating the combat effectiveness of their units and in relating effectiveness to the requirement for reconstitution. The study approach was developed in recognition that the reconstitution decision will always be judgmental, based on the commander's perceptions and weightings of both quantitative and subjective elements. Historical data on actual decisions do not fully document the prevalent conditions that influenced the decision process. However, a body of simulated decisions, made under controlled conditions, should provide an adequate basis for analysis. A set of indicators of combat effectiveness potential was developed for this study. These indicators were used in the design of a questionnaire to collect a data base of military judgment on unit combat effectiveness and the related need for reconstitution. The resulting data were analyzed, and guidelines for reconstitution decisions were proposed. (Author)
The Dismounted Infantry Aggregation Methodology (DIAM) in the Jiffy Game( )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Results from low resolution corps and division level war games and simulations have become increasingly important to decisions involving weapon system procurement and the force structuring process. In the past, dismounted units have been poorly represented in these models. Games such as Jiffy and the developmental CORDIVEM did not portray explicity the attributes of dismounted squads and platoons. These games were usually oriented to the armor/antiarmor battle, with end of simulation occurring at about 500 meters. Consequently, the effects of dismounted units in the corps/division level combined arms battle were not accounted for satisfactorily. This report describes a method for representing such battles in division or corps level simulations by aggregating terrain effects and numbers of weapon systems in order to reduce set up and run requirements while explicitly representing dismounted tactics, weapon lethality, and target vulnerability. The method has general applicability in existing war games. It has been implemented as a computerized combat model in the Jiffy war game and used in gaming support for the High Technology Light Division study
