In 1941, Dr. Harry Wilmer, a psychiatrist, wrote and illustrated a story during his long convalescence with tuberculosis. It was published by the National Tuberculosis Association (eventually renamed the American Lung Association) in multiple editions throughout the 1940's.

Tuberculosis (or TB) is caused by an infection of mycobacteria and may result in cavities within the lung containing nodular growths called tubercles. The infection is passed from person to person most often by inhaling droplets expelled from an infected host. Relatively few mycobacteria are required for infection, and depending on the strength of the host's immune system, the infection may remain dormant for years or progress to active disease with fever and bloody cough. Since Dr. Wilmer's illness, several antibiotics have been developed, but antibiotic therapy still takes several months to be effective.
