Pioneer women’s clothing and shoes, pioneer medical innovations, pioneer medicine
New Zealand’s Pioneers are the first people in the world to be credited with inventing the first modern hospital gown, a surgical mask and even the first surgical vacuum.
In 1903, a woman named Martha Latham made her debut at a sewing workshop in the town of Whakapapa in New Zealand, where she was working as a seamstress.
It was there that she found the perfect garment for her first sewing job.
Her husband, William, a tailor, was working at a nearby workshop.
He had just finished a coat for his sister and thought that the dress might work.
Martha asked her husband what he thought about the suit.
He said: ‘It suits me fine.
I’ve never seen anything like it.’
Martha and William Latham became the first members of the Latham family to be awarded a patent for their invention.
The patent was first issued in 1910.
The Lathams were the first to patent the suit and, for the next 40 years, they invented some of the first things that people used to cleanse their bodies.
In 1924, Martha Lytham was diagnosed with breast cancer.
As a result of her cancer diagnosis, she had to wear a large surgical mask during surgery.
She was left in the dark as to how to make her own medical equipment and, at the time, a vacuum was not available.
She was not alone.
In 1926, William Lythams wife, Jane, had a similar diagnosis.
He also felt that his wife had a good suit to wear and asked her to sew it.
Jane Lytharms sewing skills were soon copied by other seamstresses in New South Wales and Victoria, and in 1928, the Lythars became the founders of the New Zealand Company of Pioneers.
Jane and William started out sewing, making clothes for their own families.
Jane Lytharth was the first person to be made into a pioneer.
She worked at the hospital where she first started sewing and, in the late 1930s, became the hospital’s first nurse.
The Lytharms were also the first woman to have her own personal surgeon.
Martha Litharth’s first operation was in 1938 and her second surgery was in 1940.
In the early 1950s, the New South Welsh government introduced a national surgical programme that was funded by the Lothars.
The new scheme, known as the National Surgical Training Scheme, included an apprenticeship scheme for young women.
Jane also became the youngest nurse at the New England Hospital.
She also became a nurse practitioner at the same hospital.
In 1954, the first of five pioneering doctors, Dr Stephen Smith, was appointed to the Royal New Zealand College of Surgeons.
Smith had been an assistant professor at the University of Auckland when the Lithsons moved to the town.
He was a medical anthropologist and a pioneer in the field of anthropology.
In 1955, he was appointed Chief Medical Officer of the Royal College of New Zealand (RCNZ).
He was also a pioneer for the use of antibiotics, a breakthrough that was to change medicine for the better.
The New South New Zealand Medical Association (NSNMMA) was formed in 1957.
In 1958, the NNMMA became the largest hospital professional body in the country.
It also became responsible for establishing the first postgraduate medical degree for postgraduate doctors.
Dr Smith’s appointment as Chief Medical officer of the RNZMA was made the following year.
The first nurse to be trained in a surgical theatre was Dr John Curnoe, who joined the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in 1960.
He and his colleague Dr Helen Gage moved to New Zealand in 1962 and opened the first clinic at the Royal Otago Hospital in 1964.
Curnoe and Gage had been working at Otago University Medical School in Dunedin when they first heard about the possibility of setting up a surgical training centre in New England.
They were able to convince the school to fund the $200,000 (£125,000) cost of a two-year training course.
The Otago College of Nurses also funded the $100,000 costs.
The Royal New England College of Doctors (RNECD) was established in 1964 and became the country’s first post-graduate medical school.
It has now trained more than 200,000 people, and the training programme has been extended by about a third to include more areas of specialisation.
The RNECD has also expanded its role to include the Royal Auckland Hospital.
It now runs a training programme for primary care staff in the hospital.
The postgraduate degree is a significant step forward for the field and is a reflection of the work of the pioneers, the RNEPD said in a statement.
It was established to promote and sustain the profession in the area of health care, it said.
New Zealand is a country where the pioneers are remembered, and it is an important part of the country and the country is
