This image depicted a transaxial section of a primate’s cervical region, through the level of the animal’s nasopharynx, revealing the presence of what was termed, an experimental tonsillar plague, present in the region’s Waldeyer ring, caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, formerly referred to as Pasteurella pestis. Findings were published in the Proceedings of the symposia held during the diamond jubilee of the Haffkine Institute, Jan. 10th to 14th, 1959 [1960]. This slide was from the collection gathered by the immunologist, Dr. Karl Friedrich Meyer.
