Description

The Florida Public Health Association was formed in 1929 to assist public health workers with the promotion of public health programs in the state. Membership was open to all professional public health workers in Florida as well as interested citizens and organizations. Jacksonville was designated as the association's head quarters.
Early mosquito control spraying consisted of making a "thermal fog," in which hot diesel oil was mixed with a DDT solution and then vaporized.
