Excerpt from Report of the Board of Health of the State of New Jersey, 1877, Vol. 1 The board proceeded to a consideration of those subjects which most urgently seemed to call for their attention. As only about six months would elapse before the first report is required to be rendered, it was thought best to study and outline the work to be done, rather than enter at once upon an extended series of investigations. The following subjects were chosen and committees appointed to make thereupon preliminary reports: On registry of Births, Marriages and Deaths - Messrs. Kelsey, Marsh and Bodine. On the duty the State owes to children as to their protection from impairment of health in the Home, at the School and in the Workshop - Messrs. Hunt. Dennis and Brackett. A brief summary of directions to families as to the more common domiciliary influences and surroundings productive of disease, and the means of detecting, neutralizing or preventing the same - Messrs. Ridge, Osborne, Taylor and Marcy. A brief statement of endemics or epidemics that have occurred since 1870 in the State, and their causes, so far as ascertained Messrs. Varick, Culver and Gauntt. A brief paper of information which shall point out such locali ties in the State, as from their topographical and geological posi tion and condition, stand in special need of sanitary improve ment - Prof. George H. Cook. A statement of the climatology at various points in our State for five years past, and of diseases apparently dependent there upon - Messrs. Brackett. Osborne and Dennis.
