This historic photograph depicted Centers for Disease Control (CDC) laboratorian George Gorman at left, alongside Dr. Jim Feeley, while they were examining culture plates, upon which the first environmental isolates of Legionella pneumophila had been grown. Dr. Feeley and Mr. Gorman were the creators of a non-selective medium known as F-G (Feeley-Gorman) medium, which was used to harvest cultures of L. pneumophila, early on in the identification of this bacteria, as the pathogen responsible for causing what came to be known as Legionnaires’ disease. In the photograph, Mr. Gorman can be seen working under a negatively pressurized ventilation hood, while Dr. Feeley was checking the plates under a binocular microscope.
