His progress chronicled by an X-ray, it took Jackson three separate attempts to remove from a nine-month-old boy four interlocked safety pins and a piece of wool the child had been fed by his sister. (From the Collection of the Mütter Museum, The College of Physicians of Philadelphia).

Jackson removed an astounding variety of items, including a Perfect Attendance pin (from a four-year-old boy who, unlike most of Jackson’s patients, didn’t survive the removal) and a tiny Kewpie doll (from the larynx of a four-year-old girl, in less than two minutes). (Rosamond Purcell).

In 1923, Jackson removed more than 30 objects from the infant Joseph B., whose parents suspected that a friend “deliberately fed these many articles to the child” (Chevalier Jackson Foreign Body Collection. Collection of the Mütter Museum, The College of Physicians of Philadelphia).

Jackson taught children who had ingested lye to swallow a tube that might allow the esophagus, narrowed by scar tissue, to expand. (Modern Manuscripts Collection, History of Medicine Division, National Library of Medicine, Bethesda, Maryland).

This “action exhibit,” on display at Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute in 1938, allowed museum goers to peer through a bronchoscope inserted in a breathing mannequin and use tools (all designed by Jackson) to remove a nail. (The Historical and Interpretive Collection of the Franklin Institute, Inc., Philadelphia, PA).
