TitleLetter from Edward Hindle, Shantung Christian University, Tsinan, China, to the Secretary of the Royal Society
Date12 November 1926
DescriptionRegrets that the Canadian Presbyterian Mission have refused to release Dr McClure for work on the Kala Azar Commission -- had hoped to investigate correlations between Kala Azar and species Phlebotomus, but would find this impossible without further assistance -- is on the lookout for local help. Has seen the work of the Field Studies Unit and notes that they have failed to find a correlation between a sandfly species and the disease -- the case of a baby with the disease in a fly-free area suggests some other method of transmission. Notes that it seems to be more difficult to infect sandflies with Chinese Kala Azar than the Indian equivalent. Is writing up his research on Leishmania. p140-1.
