    Transcript of an interview with James H. Steele conducted by Peter Schantz, 1989 in Atlanta, Ga.

    Dr. Steele began by discussing his activities in W.H.O. and his 1946 memo recommending a veterinary component for control of zoonotic diseases and food hygiene. He said integration of veterinary science in other countries' programs was sparse, originally, and veterinary medicine was tied only to agricultural economics. He doubted international work's effect because he believed 3rd world countries lacked internal support and Latin American countries struggled politically. Dr. Steele touted the worldwide impact of the chick-embryo vaccine for rabies. He found that domestic psittacosis and wild rabies problems were best solved with medicated seed and oral rabies virus, respectively. He expected the association between avian and swine flu but was puzzled that swine flu stopped transmitting to man. Furthermore, he discussed control of animal chlamydia and upgrading management of laboratory animals. He believed the future of veterinarians in public health would focus on epidemiology, changing disease behavior, radiation, and communication public health knowledge to the nation.
