Baby Incubator Exhibit at 1909 Seattle World's Fair

Dr. Martin A. Couney (1870–1950) a pioneer in neonatal care, and student of Dr.Pierre-Constant Budin has saved thousands of infants by an unorthodox method of putting incubators of prematurely born babies on display. While technically being a carnival show on Coney Island, NY, the treatment of babies was ethically sound and paid for itself.
