"Emerging Infections, From Host Defense to Vaccines"
The John F. Anderson Memorial Lectureship was established in 1955 by Dr. John F. Anderson, a graduate in 1895 of the University of Virginia School of Medicine. Through his most generous gift to the University, it has been possible to establish a lectureship in medical science and public health, which will bring to this medical community, the latest developments in these fields.
Dr. Anderson, who made many outstanding contributions to the science of medicine during his long career of service and leadership in public health, medical research and medical production, died in New Brunswick, N.J., on September 29, 1958, at age 87.
