Entitled, Bubonic Plague-Aureomycin Treated (2 cases), this graph was used in an article in the 1956 issue of Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, volume 56, pages 1228-1274. The article was authored by, K. F. Meyer, S. F. Quan, F. R. McCrumb, and A. Larson, and was entitled, “Effective Treatment of Plague”. The graph highlighted the effects that the use of the antibiotic, aureomycin, had upon these two cases, relative to the patients’ rate of respiration, and temperature. Plague is caused by the bacterium, Yersinia pestis, formerly known as Pasteurella pestis. This slide was from the collection gathered by the immunologist, Dr. Karl Friedrich Meyer.
