Attack on Dental Disease
Opening next September, the School of Dental Medicine was established for the purpose of training new types of scientific workers, combining the skills of both medicine and dentistry, for an attack on the great public health problem of dental disease.
The endowment for the new School is made up of gifts from the Carnegie Corporation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the John and Mary R. Markle Foundation.
