Excerpt from The Causes and Prevention of Deafness: Four Lectures Delivered Under the Auspices of the National Bureau for Promoting the General Welfare of the Deaf
Dr. Kerr Love, in giving the following Lectures, has responded in a most helpful and generous way to the invitation of the National Bureau for Promoting the General Welfare of the Deaf. The Four Lectures were given during the winter of 1912-3, and now that they are issued in pamphlet form, they become accessible to all those who are in sympathy with this great movement for the prevention of deafness.
In formulating a correct classification of tho various types o( deafness, in indicating its leading causes, and in suggesting means for its prevention, Dr. Kerr Love has brought the whole question out into the open, and advanced the time when deafness shall be far less frequent than it now is. He has. to a large extent, wiped out the just reproach of the past, that science had not contributed its proper share in elucidating the origius of, and the remedies lor this serious and wide-spread affliction.
May the outcome of Dr. Kerr Love's strenuous work, involving numerous investigations and scientific researches, l>c the prevention of deafness in all those eases wherein prevention is humanly possible-a result which would not only add to the sum total of the world's happiness by avoiding affliction in individuals, but also increase the economic well-being of the community.
The heartfelt thanks of the Council and Executive Committee of the Bureau, as well as those of everyone interested in the welfare of humanity, arc due to Dr. Kerr Love; and to their thanks I cordially and earnestly add my own.
