The history of occupational medicine is described and illustrated in a brochure commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the Division of Occupational Health in the service of the American Worker's health. In the course of a million years or so, at incalculable cost in injury, disease, and death, man has moved from pebble tool to miniaturized part, from neolithic hoe to corporate farm, from flint diggings to mechanized mines, from copper reduction to modern metallurgy, from alchemy to chemistry and nuclear physics. The story of occupational medicine is not a catalog of diseases, bur rather a picture of increasing success that enabled the worker to gain satisfaction through work, without the penalties of trauma and disease.
