Happy Birthday Edward Jenner! Edward Jenner is known for his discovery of the use of cowpox as a vaccine against smallpox. He also had a medical collection, much like our own dr. Mütter. We are lucky enough to have a piece of that collection. This is a bezoar from the stomach of a cow. Note on the second image it’s labeled: hair ball. Cow. You can see a bezoar in our Grimm’s Anatomy exhibit, and you can see much more hair in our current special exhibition Woven Strands: The Art of Human Hair Work. #jenner #edwardjenner #notkyliejenner #science #vaccines #smallpox #hairball #museum #museumcollection #pathology
