"Charlotte Root, '34, is one of our few alumnae in the field of medical research. She was a teaching fellow in Zoology at Smith College, 1934-36, and Histological technician in the Department of Anatomy at Yale Medical School the following year. In the spring of 1938 she went to the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine to work as a volunteer technician under Dr. Howard Brown, professor of Bacteriology, and in the fall registered in the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health as a candidate for the degree of Master of Hygiene in Bacteriology; at the same time she she started work as a bacteriological technician in a research laboratory of the Department of Epidemiology, receiving her degree in 1941. Shortly afterward the laboratory was placed under contract with the government, working for the Meningococcal Meningitis Commission of the Board for the Investigation of Influenze and Other Epidemic Diseases in the U. S. Army. Much of Miss Root's time during the past year has been spent in Army camps doing carrier surveys."
