Historic Medical Supplies

Medical Instrument Case
A few doctor’s items from the Orange County Historical Museum have been added to DigitalNC. These items belonged to Dr. Edmund Strudwick, a physician and surgeon from Hillsborough, N.C. I don’t envy the people on whom Dr. Strudwick worked with those scary suturing needles, but it would be pretty neat to have your doctor arrive on horseback with all of his supplies in tow in a specially constructed medical saddlebag.
