In The Texas Meningitis Epidemic (1911–1913): Origin of the Meningococcal Vaccine, two physician authors present the dramatic medical history of a monstrous southwestern disease epidemic. They also describe the development of the intraspinal antimeningitis serum treatment for curing the disease and the meningococcal vaccine for preventing it. The authors bring the events to blazing life by skillfully drawing on original texts that evoke the grit and grace of everyday people who united to vanquish a brutal disease in early twentieth-century Texas.
