Abstract

It is a good plan to make a permanent record of some of the work done by undergraduate students, provided the observations are carefully made and recorded. During the winter of 1892 and 1893 there was a serious epidemic of typhoid fever in La Crosse, Wisconsin, which came to my notice through my brother, H. A. Pammel. I was asked to make a bacteriological examination of the water and report. It was impossible for me to do so because of other work on hand at that time. Two senior students, Messrs. McCall and Patton, then at work in the bacteriological laboratory, consented to work it up for their thesis. My brother collected the samples on May 2. They were placed in thoroughly scalded bottles and sent to me by express. Most of the samples of water were submitted to an analysis on May 10.
