This book is the first full-length biography of Samuel Taylor Darling, a remarkable scientist who was one of the world’s leading experts in tropical diseases in the early 20th century. It details how, as a pathologist, Darling performed more than 4,000 autopsies among employees of the Panama Canal Company who died between 1905 and 1914 and such experience gave him a singular perspective on the anatomical pathology of tropical diseases.

The book shows how the results of Darling’s innovative work helped him to develop new concepts about diagnosis and treatment of malaria, amebic dysentery, intestinal parasitosis, and other diseases common in tropical regions. This work is essential reading for medical historians and those interested in the history of sanitation and public health, malaria, and yellow fever- and provides a better understanding of the Panama Canal experience and Rockefeller philanthropy in tropical medicine and hygiene.
