Excerpt from A Plan for a More Effective Federal and State Health Administration It is not only desirable but an essential prerequisite of social progress that inquiry shall be made from time to time concerning the present value and the further perfection of existing methods or instrumentalities ministering to human welfare and human wants. Health is so obviously of the first importance that its protection and more or less effective conservation have from time immemorial been made at least a matter of individual, if not collective, concern. Most of the so-called health legislation from the earliest times to the present day, however, has been concerned with the correction of ascertained sanitary or related imperfections, rather than with anticipatory action having for its purpose the prevention of disease and premature death. Much of what is called preventive medicine, even at the present time, is in the direction of prevention of further damage and harm rather than of a character deliberately designed to preclude the occurrence or inception of dangers which so frequently, and practically continuously, threaten the individual and collective welfare in what, for want of a better term, is comprehended as the vast field of public hygiene. The fact must not be overlooked that in its origin, every modern public health organization rests primarily upon the principle of quarantine as applied in the case of recognized infectious or contagious diseases, and the, if necessary, drastic exercise of the police powers on the part of the Government, the States, and the civil subdivisions thereof. The Quarantine Basis Of Public Health Probably the earliest quarantine legislation in this country was adopted by the General Court of Massachusetts in 1647 or 1648, to prevent the introduction of the plague (probably yellow fever) "which was then devastating the West Indies."
