Author Affiliations +

The present issue is Number 1 of Volume 100, The Journal of Parasitology. All 6 numbers of this, our Centennial Volume, are dedicated to those in the past who have contributed in any manner to the Journal's success as a national and international broker for parasitology. Our essay on the history of the Journal is divided into 3 parts. The first extends from 1914 to 1932, i.e., ‘the beginning', when Henry Baldwin Ward was Editor and owned the Journal. The ‘middle years' continue from 1933, when Ward gave the Journal to the American Society of Parasitologists, to 1961. The ‘current period' carries on from 1961 to the present, our Centennial year. Obviously, we cannot provide a great many specific details for each era, but we have made an effort to identify some of the events, issues, and people that have played a significant role in our Journal's history.
