In January, 1913, Ennion U. William, M. D., commissioner of health of Virginia; Hon. Joseph D. Eggleston, retiring superintendent of public instruction; R. C. Stearns, his successor; and W. H. Heck, Ph. D., professor of education in the University of Virginia, projected an intensive survey of the white and colored schools and school children of Orange County, Virginia. Roy K. Flannagan, M. D., director of inspections of the Virginia State Board of Health, was placed in charge of the purely rural investigation, and two members of the Rockefeller Sanitary Commission, Dr. W. A. Brumfield and Dr. H. A. Lickle, assigned to hookworm investigation, were detailed to assist him. Dr. Heck secured the voluntary services of Dr. H. S. Hedges, Dr. R. L. Compton, and Dr. J. C. Flippen, of Charlottesville, members of the faculty of the University of Virginia medical department; and Marvin Harris, D. D. S., of Orange, who made inspection of all of the consolidated schools. Mr. C. P. Cowherd, district superintendent of the schools of Orange, also rendered valuable service in smoothing the path of the inspectors and every teacher in the schools visited cordially cooperated. The investigation was designed to cover the physical condition of the children in attendance on the schools, the enrollment, the proportional attendance, the size, equipment, and appearance of buildings and grounds, heating and lighting arrangement, water supply, and sanitary conveniences. Data along collateral lines were also gathered, and the pertinent portions are included in the report. This bulletin is divided into the following chapters: (1) The setting of the survey and explanatory note; (2) Organization and methods; (3) Results of the inspection; and (4) Rural school building equipment and environment. (Contains 8 plates and 1 footnote.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
