This historic 1968 photograph depicted Dr. Steven R. Mostow (right), formerly a Medical Officer with the Respiratory Virus Infections Unit at the National Communicable Disease Center (NCDC), was shown here collecting blood to be used for comparison with blood, which would be acquired at a later time, in order to test for the possible presence of antibodies against the influenza virus. The NCDC (1967-1970) was one of the forerunners of the more contemporary Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which was officially named in 1992.
