This historic 1964 photograph was captured during an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) deployment to what had been East Pakistan, and after 1971, became known as Bangladesh. The scenario featured the dedication ceremony held on what would become the medical transport boat named the Joseph E. Smadel, used to transport EIS and medical personnel along the region’s waterways. The image was created by Dr. Alexander D. Langmuir, former Chief Epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and founder of the Disease Investigations branch of the EIS in 1951.
