Title

"Cases of Syphilis Traced to One Person in One Year"

Description

This pictorial statistic shows how syphilis spreads between different people. It uses the spirochete symbol to indicate individuals' status. It is modeled after an epidemiological image from the early 1930s. Here, the image is presented without many of the details about the case that originally appeared with it. The infographic is is a graphic print for an image that appeared in Parran's 1937 book, Shadow on the Land.
