The Society of Scientific Writers is honored to present to Oswald Theodore Avery its semi-annual de Kruif award for signal service in the popular dissemination of medical misinformation. No other author of our day has written more easily, more effortlessly and with such wide appeal of the day by day discoveries in his own and other laboratories. No other scientist of our day has so foresworn the ivory tower and from the rostrum, the platform, on the radio and in the lay press brought to every village and hamlet in this fair country of ours, to every man and woman, the knowledge of what science can do to relieve them of the doleful burden of disease.
