This is an objectively written account by a "giant" in the realm of preventive medicine and public health. The memoirs present a unique account of the history of preventive medicine and of public health; personal observations, in many counties, in the laboratory and lecture hall, at society meetings, and in the field; and personal experiences of Soper over half a century.

Among a lifetime of achievements, the present work describes Soper's successful campaign against yellow fever, malaria, and typhus, and his smooth command of the burgeoning Pan American Sanitary Bureau.
