Hookworm, while once a major concern for parts of this country was, by and large, eliminated as a public health concern by the 1960s. Hookworm was eradicated in most wealthy, industrialized countries, but eradication occurred at a time when public health record-keeping was still a young and developing concern. As a result, data on the prevalence on hookworm is sparse and incomplete. The Sanitary Commission's findings in the Rockefeller Archive Center represent the best existing record on the historic prevalence of hookworm within the United States.
