Charles V. Chapin—pioneer in public health—won international as well as local reputation for his fundamental contributions to sanitation, the control of communicable disease, public health administration, epidemiology, and the collection and use of vital statistics. His reports and his great book, The Sources and Modes of Infection, are classics in the field. This first full biography is also a history of the public health movement in Europe and the United States—peopled with such figures as William H. Welch, Theodore Roosevelt, Sir Arthur Newsholme, and Karl Pearson—and of the major social problems created by urbanism, immigration, and industrialization.
