This book is a very significant and useful contribution to the history of public health in the United States.--George Rosen, M.D., Professor of the History of Medicine, and Epidemiology and Public Health, Yale University In describing Lucius Polk Brown's career, Margaret Ripley Wolfe presents a case example of how the crusade for effective regulation of the American food and drug supply during the Progressive era developed on the state and municipal levels. As a study of a major figure in food and drug regulation at the local level, this book pioneers in meeting an important historiographical need. It contributes not only to food and drug history, and the history of the Progressive period.--James Harvey Young, Professor of History, Emory University
