The Liaison Committee of the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology has maintained its longest continuous “sister” relationship with the Crawford W. Long Museum in Jefferson, Georgia. To reach Jefferson, visitors can fly into the world’s busiest airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. From there, they can travel 65 miles northeast on I-85 North, then 5 miles southeast on U.S. 129 South toward Jefferson’s Historic Square. Located at 28 College Street, the Crawford W. Long Museum (above) celebrates both local history and a local hero, Crawford Williamson Long, M.D. (1815 to 1878), who etherized James Venable for minor surgery in Jefferson on March 30, 1842. Reflecting the broad interests of physician-pharmacist Crawford Long, the museum complex includes an 1840s apothecary and physician’s office housed in the 1858 Pendergrass Store building. To their mutual benefit, the Crawford W. Long Museum and the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology have shared the history of anesthesia with each other, with professionals, and with the public.
