Hay Fever is a disease which on account of its peculiar interest has attracted the attention of the medical world ever since it was first accurately described by Bostock of London in 1819. To what extent the disease occurred before his time is difficult to determine; but from the fact that his observations were at once confirmed by a number of contemporary medical men it is probable that at the time of his writing it was not very uncommon. We have no exact knowledge of the existence of the disease in England prior to the nineteenth century, and indeed many authors hold that the chief etiological factors were not present in earlier times. It is my purpose in this thesis to discuss the researches recently carried out by Prof. Dunbar at the State Institute of Public Health in Hamburg which have very considerably increased our knowledge of the interesting malady, and have also narrowed the field for its future investigation.
