|Contribution||Issued major indictment of unsanitary conditions in British industrial slums.|
|Notes||Edwin Chadwick. Abandoned belief (similar to that of Frank in Austria at turn of century) that poverty caused ill-health; and argued instead that ill-health caused poverty. While not directly implicating germs, this thesis laid important groundwork for the control of disease by means which were, unknowingly, based on the interruption of germ transmission. See 1848.|
