The course was instigated by Martha Leona Chapline after she won the National Child Health Contest, which was promoted by the Child Health Association of New York. Dr. Nolt of Boston was city health doctor at the time (1925-1926) and was one of the instructors. University credit was given for the course. Chapline lectured on the "Bag of Tricks" used to interest children in living up to health rules.
