Gorgas) to establish a Section of Graphics in the Army Medical Museum, which was to include drawings in black and white, in color, paintings, sculpture, photographs, moving pictures, etc. In studying these questions one of the first names that came before me was that of Frank B. Gilbreth, of Providence, Rhode Island. I at once wrote to him, telling him my troubles and asking for assistance. His answer came promptly: he, himself, coming, bringing one of his assistants with him and all of the material necessary to show me the details of how the matter was to be accomplished. Meanwhile, I had been talking with the Officers of the War College, Colonel Bowman, Majors Ellis and E. B. Garey. They were having troubles of their own, but I, having seen what Gilbreth had in mind, thought that his knowledge of the subject would make him of far greater value to the United States on duty with the War College than it could be in the Surgeon-Generals Office in the Army Medical Museum. I told Colonel Bowman of Gilbreth. I brought the two together, and as a result, Gilbreth, who had already been commissioned as Major of Engineers, was detailed to the General Staff, and sent to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, to study the methods for standardizing the training of soldiers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
