This photograph depicted the portrait of the Centers for Disease Control's founder, Dr. Joseph W. Mountin (1891-1952), who established the organization in 1946, as a descendant of the post-World War II agency, Malaria Control in War Areas, MCWA. Dr. Mountin’s credentials included a position as Assistant Surgeon General, and Chief of the Bureau of State Services of the Public Health Service. For 35 years, Dr. Mountin served as a Public Health Service officer, and was often referred to as the father of many of the public health service programs still active today.
