Flyer for Ford Hall Youth Forum lecture with Dr. M.A. Nelson, held at Ashburton Place at Bowdoin Street, on Wednesday, November 17th, unknown year. Transcription: "Concerning ourselves with more colorful problems, we have been allowing a dangerous enemy to make gigantic inroads. Syphilis, long nurtured by hypocrisy and false morality, has become one of the most prevalent diseases in the country. Today, one out of every ten citizens is its victim. The Youth Forum takes this opportunity of presenting a discussion of the social and economic, as well as medical, aspects of this disease. Dr. M. A. Nelson, outstanding authority on this subject, is a member of the faculties of Harvard, Tufts, and Simmons. Youthful, alert, and forceful, he has earned an enviable reputation as a speaker on syphilis. Dr. Nelson's presentation will be non-medical"
