Robert Wood Johnson attended the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia as a representative of his company, Seabury & Johnson. At the Medical Congress, a fair attraction, he listened to a lecture by the pioneering physician, Dr. Joseph Lister, who championed his radical new procedure: sterile surgery. Inspired by Lister, Johnson went on to co-found Johnson & Johnson, the world's first company to mass-produce antiseptic surgical supplies.
