Anatomical Model, SpineAbout this object
This is an anatomical model of the spine which belonged to Doctor Hewat of Wyndham. The model appears to have been a gift with purchase from a prescription drug company who sold chinoril/sulindac which is an anti-inflammatory.
About Doctor Hewat:
Doctor Hewat took over the Wyndham practice from Doctor Baird in 1952. Although he only intended to stay in the town for a short time, he ended up practicing until his retirement in 2001. In the early days, Doctor Hewat held clinics from Woodlands to near Clinton and out to the South Coast. In later years, with the improvement of roads, patients travelled to Doctor Hewat's surgery on Balaclava Street. For most of his time, Doctor Hewat did not accept appointments, instead tending to the his patients on a first come first served basis. This often resulted in cars lined way up the street right to the Presbyterian Church.
Doctor Hewat remained in Wyndham after his retirement and died in 2003.
