The first state-level medical history society to have a website. Our goal is to promote interest, research, and writing in medical history, and we are dedicated to the discussion and enjoyment of the history of medicine and allied fields.
Have you been going a little stir crazy? The Museum of Early Trads and Crafts, located in Madison, NJ, has reopened. All visitors must call ahead (24 hours) to reserve a time to visit, wear a mask and socially distance. Please go to their website (https://www.metc.org) for more information.
Their current exhibits include Cholera to COVID-19: Epidemics, Pandemics & Disease
This exhibit explores America’s experience with infectious diseases, such as yellow fever, smallpox, cholera, typhoid, and tuberculosis. Primary source documents supplemented by historic objects from METC’s permanent collection will highlight the resources, tools, and techniques physicians used to diagnose and treat patients during these historic outbreaks.
