An essay is presented on the collection of medical memorabilia and Victorian antiquities by retired registered nurse Nancy MacLeod. It mentions the time that she started collecting, in which a feeder cup was her first piece in the late 1970s. She acquired artifacts from Civil War reenactments in 1994 and transitioned to road shows in 1998. MacLeod's interest in nursing, medicine, and history has inspired her to collect antiquities.
