Henry Ford museum testing its patent medicines

The Henry Ford museum is letting chemists test its patent medicines, which is pretty cool. I didn't know they had a health aids collection.

Yup, there's a great patent medicine collection. The medical history collections in general are pretty unexceptional--glassware, surgical instruments, field kits--mostly from late 19th C. There's also some industrial medicine papers from Ford Motor Co.
