Description

Nick Kramis recalls his experiences working for the Rocky Mountain Laboratories starting in the 1930s. He describes the work he did, infesting ticks with parasites in order to reduce the human population’s exposure to diseases such as spotted fever. Kramis explains in detail the process all the way from finding healthy ticks to releasing them back into the environment. He also talks about the films and displays he made for RML, and how these films are used by various institutions all over the United States.
