When the bibliophile and avid collector of anesthesia equipment and artifacts Paul M. Wood, M.D. (1894-1963) donated his personal collection to ASA in the early 1930s, what was to become the eponymous Library-Museum of Anesthesiology was essentially a one-man operation. During the ensuing 85 years, however, the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology (WLM) has enjoyed impressive growth and global acclaim, no doubt surpassing even the most expansive dreams of its founder. Today’s WLM family, composed of more than 30 dedicated librarians, archivists, trustees, committee members and a distinguished honorary curator, is passionately committed to maintaining and advancing the WLM as a vibrant beacon of knowledge and service, firmly believing that the rich heritage of our specialty should not be relegated to the dust bin of insignificance or be abandoned to the predations of time.
