Pope County Museum A-Z is a continuing feature of our blog. Periodically, I will highlight an item or items from our Museum collection.
Today’s item is a Ritter Model A Dental X-Ray. It was developed in 1920 and manufactured until the 1930s, when a newer, safer model was developed.
This particular x-ray machine was used by Dr. James Gilman in Glenwood.
Dr. Gilman grew up in Willmar and came to Glenwood in 1946 after spending 3 years in the Naval Dental Corps in WWII.
