The Meadowland Museum is launching an exhibition called "The Practice and the Patent: Healthcare in the Early 20th Century." The exhibit will focus on the innovations in healthcare history, from around 1900 to 1950, by the exploring the products and breakthroughs of Becton Dickinson, a company formerly located in Rutherford. It will also delve into the other side of medicine, the person-to-person interaction with doctors. One such practitioner, William Carlos Williams, a Rutherford resident, is today known for his poetry but actually worked as physician for over 40 years in the region. His specialty was obstetrics and pediatrics, and he delivered many babies, in the town of Rutherford, as well as during his time at Passaic General Hospital (now St. Mary’s General Hospital).
