No. 52

THE BOARD'S ACTION ON DR. BIGGS' RETIREMENT. In recognition of the valuable services rendered the department by Dr. Hermann M. Biggs, whose retirement, after twenty-six years of service, was announced in the last publication of the bulletin, the Board of Health of the Department of Health has adopted the following resolution:

"Whereas, The present high standing of the Department of Health is inseparably connected with the work of preventive medicine, and

"Whereas, Through the establishment of bacteriological laboratories, the organization of a disinfection service, the initiation and development of measures for the administrative control of tuberculosis, the provision of facilities for the bacteriological diagnosis and specific treatment of diphtheria and other infectious diseases, the administration of the Department of Health of The City of New York has everywhere been conceded to be a model of its kind, and

"Whereas, All these activities are due almost wholly to the genius and initiative of the General Medical Officer of the Department of Health, Dr. Hermann M. Biggs, whose broad scientific knowledge and sound judgment has been of inestimable value to the Department of Health, and

Whereas, Through the retirement of Dr. Hermann M. Biggs, after a service of over twenty-six years, the Department of Health and The City of New York lose the services of one of the most distinguished public health administrators; therefore be it
