Nearly 50 years ago, in November of 1963, the president of the American Medical Association (left, Edward Annis, M.D.) and the president of the “WLM,” or Wood Library-Museum (right, Albert Betcher, M.D.), celebrated the Park Ridge, Illinois, opening of the WLM. As part of the festivities, the American Society of Anesthesiologists photographed AMA Pres. Annis handling the mask of an early carbon dioxide–absorbing apparatus designed by Dr. Dennis E. Jackson. Sadly, Dr. Betcher could not introduce Dr. Annis to Paul Wood, M.D.—the WLM’s founder had suffered a fatal heart attack in May of 1963 while preparing to open his namesake museum.
