Photographed sometime in the 1960s, this historic image featured former Centers for Disease Control (CDC) microbiologist, Dr. William Vernon Hartwell, as he was reading a print-out produced from an unidentified machine, which judging from the data, was measuring chemical samples for their content concentrations. Vern, as he liked to be called, was associated with early studies conducted in the area of Hepatitis-B virus (HBV) analyses, specializing in the realm of Australian antigen testing. Dr. Hartwell initially worked at the U.S. Bubonic Plague station, in San Francisco, which was located aside the Mariner’s Hospital. He was subsequently transferred in 1958, to a small branch of the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS), the Communicable Disease Center in Phoenix, Arizona, which eventually became the agency with which we’re familiar today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
