Catch the Quack Exhibit

Discover the era of quack and patent medicine! Quack medicine often relied upon questionable treatments such as cocaine toothache drops, asthma cigarettes, and eyeball massagers.

This exhibit contains curious devices and perplexing ads from the 19th and early 20th century relating to quack medicine.

Created in partnership with John Davis, Rebecca Permar, Corisa Rakestraw, and Dr. Heather Wooten of the Institute for the Medical Humanities.
