Sir David Munro (23 June 1878 – 8 November 1952) was Director of the Royal Air Force Medical Service when he pointed out in 1925 that the speed of air travel from countries where infections were endemic to susceptible countries required consideration by public health administration. Prior to this role, he was in the Indian Medical Service.[1][2][3][4]
