, Florida health notes, Call# SLF: F362105S H434 1916-18
Published in Florida health notes, January 1916, p. 417.
Accompanying note: "...the exhibit finally grew to such proportions that it was impossible in many small communities to secure a hall of sufficient size to accommodate it. The idea of a completely equipped 'Educational Health Exhibit Train' was then conceived, and the State Railroad Commission was requested to grant permission to the railroads for the free transportation of such a train. The Commission, however, expressed the opinion that it had no authority to grant such permission without special legislative enactment. A bill was accordingly drafted, which was promptly passed by the legislature, authorizing the purchase of cars for this use, and permitting the free transportation of them by any railroad companies. Prior to this time the matter had been broached to the various railroad companies operating in the State, and they had without exception promptly responded with enthusiastic assurance of their assistance and cooperation in the work."
