While working on my doctoral dissertation, Malarial Fever in Colonial Bengal: Social History of an Epidemic, I inadvertently located some archival materials at West Bengal State Archives, India, that indicated the Rockefeller Foundation's (RF) intervention in the eradication of malaria in India. However, the information was incomplete, piecemeal and fragmented, and therefore it could not produce any meaningful narrative, far less warrant any sensible conclusion. Therefore, I could not make use of that ad hoc information in my story of government and nongovernment intervention in mitigating the scourge of malaria in colonial Bengal.
