Framed Letter from Dr. Chapin to Dr. Bishop

Charles V. Chapin
February 17, 1936

This is a letter from Dr. Charles Chapin, a prominent public health official in the 20th century, to Dr. Bishop, expressing gratitude for a gift.


17 Feb. 1936

Dear Doctor Bishop,

I thank you so much for sending me the copy of Health Briefs containing the sketch of the progress of state health work in Tennessee. I am pleased that you still remember us old fellows and some of our early labors. I am glad that your state has made such substantial health programs, so much of it under your administration, and of course I am gratified that you attribute some of this to the seed I tried to sow in 1915.

Yours most sincerely,

Charles V Chapin
