Drs. Lewis Wright and Paul Wood Examining Apparatus

Free Access
Although Dr. Paul Wood (right) was above average in height, he was dwarfed by one of his best friends in medical antiquing, Dr. Lewis Wright (left). Theirs was a collectors’ camaraderie. The two men are pictured examining vintage objects on a table, including (left-to-right) a plaster maquette of Crawford Long, a Waters To-and-Fro Canister, and a Lung Motor. At each Annual Meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the now deceased friends are reunited—at least in name—when the Lewis H. Wright Memorial Lecture is sponsored by the (Paul M.) Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Dr. Wood’s passing, the 2013 “Wright Lecture” was titled, “Fair Recollections of Paul Meyer Wood, M.D.: A Towering Pioneer of Anesthesiology.” (Copyright © the American Society of Anesthesiologists, Inc.)
