From: 
Knopf, Sigmund Adolphus
To: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
Abstract: 

Many of the doctors Knopf contacted have agreed to go to Baltimore to discuss the Tuberculosis question and to form a national representative Tuberculosis Committee. Knopf finds two possible solutions to the current scandal. Firstly, a petition should be signed by the best medical men in the country and sent to the Government stating that the Congress on Tuberculosis under the direction of Clark Bell is not representative of the American medical profession. Secondly, he thinks that a counter-manifestation should be sent to St. Louis to oppose Bell's Congress.
