Prompted by numerous reports of strong objectionable odors, illness, and paint darkening which began during the week end of May 9, 1964, the major of the city of Terre Haute requested assistance to evaluate the air pollution problem. Pollution due to hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans and other malodorous compounds were strongly suggested by the nature of the effects, namely, quality of odor, paint damage and gastro-intestinal disturbances. The report is a survey to evaluate the problem.
