OriginEdit

John Snow was a physician who promoted the practice of anesthesia and hygiene and is considered the founder of epidemiology, the study of the cause and spread of diseases.

When a cholera outbreak happened in Soho, London in 1854, it infected and killed six Warehouse 12 agents. The Warehouse then contacted Snow, who found the source and helped change the water system in London and other cities. The dot map, along with his pump handle, were some of the few artifacts voluntarily given to the Warehouse.
