Abstract: 

Flick believes that going into the homes of the poor and teaching them how to avoid spreading Tuberculosis is the most effective means of controlling the disease. He writes of the activities of the Free Hospital for Poor Consumptives in Pennsylvania. He states that the Phipps Institute will be made the pivotal point for Tuberculosis work, not only in the U.S, but throughout the world. The Institute was planning to bring the International Congress on Tuberculosis to the U.S. in 1905, but decided against it because of the rivalry between the Clark Bell faction and the Daniel Lewis faction.
