Copeis of Palmer's paper in Pub Health Reports, May, 1945-- Palmer had visited VU, reviewed Christie's work, and acknowledged this with the following statement--see page 520:"Special thanks also are due Dr. Amos Christie and Dr. J.C. Peterson of VUMS for specific suggestions regarding the clinical manifestations of histoplasmosis [obviously a misleading acknowledgment of their preliminary work on skin-testing in tuberculin negative cases]; Christie and Palmer's paper in Amer Jour Pub Health Nov, 1945 giving their side of the history. Dr. Goodpasture's letter to Hollis Johnson in 1955 about controversy in which he states that he (EWG) sent the Surgeon General a full account of the facts in 1945. This letter could not be found in Dr. Goodpasture's or Dr. Christie's correspondence, although we do have the letter of transmittal of EWG to Doctor Parran, the Surgeon general in Aug,1945--obviously as part of the reaction to the Palmer publication in May. The Dr. Smith referred to was Dr. C.E. Smith, Dr. Christie's mentor and an expert on coccidioidomycosis. The histories of histo by various authors also refer to this controversy.

AFIP Fascicle

Scope and Contents note

This turned out to be a seventeen year project!!! The extraordinary delays were due in part to the complexity of the subject, in part to political issues in relationship to the classification of lymphomas, in part to the problems inherent in a trans-continental collaboration, and mainly to problems one or both authors had inactually putting pen to paper.
