This historic image, photographed sometime between 1948 and 1963, featured two men seated in their Enteric Bacteriology Unit (EBU) laboratory, performing a study focused on bacterial organisms, which are known to cause gastrointestinal diseases, including diarrhea and dysentery. The two men depicted here were Dr. P.R. Edwards, of the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS), seated in the background, and George Herman. At the time of this photograph, what is now known as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was then known as the Communicable Disease Center.
