Canada's Role in Fighting Tuberculosis

NOTE: many sources researched for this website are out of print, and very few copies remain. Where this is the case, we have included the source of the copy we used (e.g. PQLA = L'Association Pulmonaire du Quebec, etc.) in brackets beside the reference. Also, more than 70% of the website content was taken from the Valley Echo, a publication of the Fort Qu'Appelle Sanatorium. The full collection of the Valley Echo, 1919 through 1969, is located at the Saskatchewan Lung Association.
