Excerpt from Actuarial Society of America, Vol. 11: Transactions; 1909-1910

The lengthening of human life is a subject that has of late been brought very prominently before the public. The matter is one of such great importance that it seems worth while to devote a part of our time to-day to some of its phases.

The literature of all nations and times re?ects the always active dread of death and the longing for length of days. The search for the philosopher's stone and the preparation and use of vari ous elixirs of life testify to the intense interest in the subject in the centuries gone by. The interest is no less intense to-day, although the methods adopted may be more rational. It is more to our purpose, however, to consider, not the narrow struggle of the individual for the prolongation of his own life, but the broader question as to the average length of human life in general.

There is evidence that for more than two hundred years at least there has been in Europe and America a more or less continuous increase in the mean duration of human life. While it is true that not until the last half century have statistics of the general popu lation been kept with any approximation to accuracy, there have been certain communities where the number of annual deaths have been recorded for long periods and where such slight changes in methods seem to have been made that the indicated decrease in the death-rate from one century to another would appear to be real.
