|Contribution||Used heat-killed typhoid bacilli to vaccinate people against typhoid fever.|
|Notes||Almroth (Sir Almroth) Wright. The result of work done in the previous year, this was the first killed-bacterium vaccine, and was also the beginning of a controversial program of vaccination, especially for military personnel. The controversy centered around statistical significance, and attracted the attention of professional statisticians. Garrison gives 1896-1897 for development of vaccine, and records that Wright was responsible for vaccination of over 3000 soldiers in India in 1898-1900.|
