September: Agreement between The Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health and the Baltimore City Health Department creates the Eastern Health District in a one-square-mile area of the City near Johns Hopkins Hospital. The District serves as the geographic base for public health and research programs conducted with financial support from the Rockefeller Foundation and the U.S. Public Health Service. Child health studies and epidemiological studies on infectious and chronic diseases are an important component of the research. 

According to the book, Bad Blood, on September 26, 1932, Johns Hopkins physicians meet and consult with physicians heading the Tuskegee experiments regarding the protocol for this notorious study in which Black subjects suffering from syphilis would be studied to document the course and progress of the disease, without being treated for the ailment.
