Description

Excerpt from First Annual Report of the Commissioner of Health of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, 1908 This report is required to set forth the action of the Department and of its officers and agents and the names thereof, a detailed statement of all moneys paid out by or on account of the Department and the manner of its expenditure, and other useful information, and to suggest any further legislative action or precaution deemed necessary for the better protection of life and health. The first opportunity for the presentation of a report would have been February 1, 1906, but inasmuch as this would have covered a period of less than seven months, and as the complete organization of the Department 'had been seriously interfered with by the necessity for prompt executive action in connection with epidemics of typhoid fever and smallpox in various parts of the State, it was deemed wise, on consultation with His Excellency, Governor Pennypacker, not to attempt to present so incomplete a report as must have been offered at that time, but to postpone its presentation until the conclusion of a full year, thus affording time for the development of the Department in its various branches and systematizing the work of its several divisions.
