Administrative history

The Aftosa International/Internacional Roundup is a 501(c)(7) nonprofit organization formed by surviving members of the 1946-1954 joint U.S.-Mexican aftosa eradication campaign (the Commission Mexico-Americana para la Erradication de la Fiebre Aftosa), which worked to eliminate aftosa fever (also known as foot and mouth disease, FMD, or hoof and mouth disease, HMD) in livestock.  Annual roundup reunions were held starting in 1984, and continued until at least 2004.
An additional archive of papers relating to their activities is held at Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas.
