In 1928 Barger used to be invited to John Hopkins college in Baltimore to carry a lecture selling "the improvement of a extra intimate dating among chemistry, pharmacy, and medicine." He selected the topic of ergot and "attempted to deal absolutely with the topic in all its aspects." This publication used to be released in 1931 and relies on these lectures.
