Years before Morton's landmark demonstration, Georgia physician Crawford W. Long administered ether (1842) to some of his surgical and obstetric patients. However, he did not publish his work until 1849. Dr. Long was the first physician-anesthetist memorialized as a marble statue in the U.S. Capitol (1926) and on a postage stamp (1940).
Fashioned by sculptor J. Massey Rhind, this plaster maquette was given to Johns Hopkins urologist Hugh Young, who officiated at the dedication of Long's marble statue at the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall in 1926.
