Inspired by antiseptic advocate Joseph Lister, Robert Wood Johnson joined his brothers, James Wood Johnson and Edward Mead Johnson, to create a line of ready-to-use surgical dressings in 1885. The company produced its earliest products in 1886. Those products initially featured a logo that resembled the signature of James Wood Johnson, very similar to the logo used today.[better source needed]
