Biographical/Historical note

The International Northwest Conference on Diseases in Nature Communicable to Man (INCDNCM) began in 1946, as a child of the International Great Plains Entomological Conference (IGPEC). The two organizations held consecutive meetings in 1947, in Hamilton, Montana. Since 1948 the INCDNCM has held an annual meeting to bring together scientists from the western United States and Canada to discuss informally current research in the field of diseases in nature communicable to man. Examples of topics include tularemia, tick-borne viruses, various fevers, and the plague. (For additional historical information, please consult the guide to Cage 109.)
