The biographer reports of Howard: 'He was fond of philosophical experiments and observations, and communicated to the Royal Society, of which he was a member, some papers in this class' (194). The account discusses Howard's philanthropic interest in hospitals, and his work on the 'progress of contagion' in hospitals and prisons.
