Bon Voyage!


The museum’s 1952 Emerson Iron Lung is on its way across the country in a comfy climate controlled, air-ride equipped trailer. It was picked up last week and will travel to San Francisco to be part of a documentary on the life of a woman who lived in an iron lung for more than 60 years. This is the first time the iron lung has been loaned since it became part of the museum’s collection. We hope it enjoys the field trip to California!

  1. Hi…I am Bobby Hill…that is me as a baby in the iron lung. I am now 60 years old and living in Southern California.

  2. The Iron Lung has been safely returned to it place in the museum. Thank you to the professional movers and film staff who took care of it while it was on its vacation!
