American Chamber of Horrors Exhibit

Items in this exhibit case were assembled by FDA staff beginning in the 1920s to illustrate limitations inherent in the 1906 "Wiley Act" which frequently made it impossible to act against dangerous products. A reporter accompanying Mrs. Franklin Roosevelt to look at the exhibit deemed it an "American Chamber of Horrors." The name stuck and it became quite effective as a means of garnishing support for a new federal food and drug law: the 1938 Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
