|At the April 1912
Board meeting, Dr. James A. Hayne was
appointed as the second State Health Officer. Dr. Hayne would lead the
Department until 1944.
|By 1912, the
Department had grown in size: there were now 12 full-time staff in addition
to Dr. Hayne. Eight of these were medical doctors, one heads up the State
Laboratory. The rest were working on rural sanitation efforts, largely funded
through the Rockefeller Sanitary Commission.
