The Library is hosting a new traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine entitled Every Necessary Care and Attention: George Washington and Medicine. It will be on display from May 30 to July 10 opposite the Circulation Desk in the library.
As head of household, plantation owner, businessman, Revolutionary War general, and president, George Washington had many different concerns and responsibilities, from running his estate to ensuring the stability of a new nation. “Every Necessary Care and Attention”: George Washington and Medicine explores the story of George Washington’s own health and examines the ways in which he sought to safeguard the health and wellness of his family, staff, slaves, and troops. Washington’s story also illuminates the broader context of the experience of illness and the practice of medicine, which during his time was transitioning from a traditional healer craft to a profession.
More information about the exhibit can be found here:https://www.nlm.nih.gov/georgewashington/
