Research Facts
Abbott Laboratories manufactured methoxyflurane, sold under the brand name Penthrane, from 1961 to 2001. A fluorinated ether, methoxyflurane was first synthesized in 1958 by Dow Chemical Company. It was one of several compounds investigated by anesthesiologists Joseph F. Artusio, Jr., M.D. (1917-2011) and Alan Van Poznak, M.D. (b. 1927). They published their research into the clinical use of methoxyflurane in 1960. A number of other positive reports quickly followed and it seemed that methoxyflurane was a perfect inhalation anesthetic: nonexplosive and nonflammable with fast induction and recovery times and few adverse effects. It has also been used for analgesia (pain relief), in such products as Abbott's Analgizer, a self-administration inhaler. Studies showing its potential kidney and liver toxicity caused methoxyflurane to fall out of favor in the United States by the late 1970s.

The Frosst Dingbat Calendars. Niagara Apothecary
Donor’s remarks
Research Facts
From 1915 until 1996, health professionals all across Canada received a calendar which featured the healing efforts of the Dingbats. Charles Edward Frosst founded the Canadian company that bore his name until 1965 when it was taken over by a major American manufacturer to become Merck-Frosst. Charles Frosst engaged the artist, William Dudley Burnett Ward, to paint an appealing calendar for distribution to his firm's audience. Over the course of 81 years there have been a long succession of artists following Ward.
The Dingbat calendars were discontinued as a result of a Canadian industry's association decision that the Dingbat promotion was unfair competition.
Gladys (Millar) Rockel graduated from Kitchener Waterloo Nursing College Class of 1939; nursing positions on Pontiac, MI (1940), Grand Rapids, MI (1941), Toronto, Ontario (1942) and worked in private practise with husband Dr Rockel.
The Dingbat calendars started in February each year leaving the last page for January of the following year still attached, so the actual calendar dates to the previous year.

Research Facts
From 1915 until 1996, health professionals all across Canada received a calendar which featured the healing efforts of the Dingbats. Charles Edward Frosst founded the Canadian company that bore his name until 1965 when it was taken over by a major American manufacturer to become Merck-Frosst. Charles Frosst engaged the artist, William Dudley Burnett Ward, to paint an appealing calendar for distribution to his firm's audience. Over the course of 81 years there have been a long succession of artists following Ward.
The Dingbat calendars were discontinued as a result of a Canadian industry's association decision that the Dingbat promotion was unfair competition.
Gladys (Millar) Rockel graduated from Kitchener Waterloo Nursing College Class of 1939; nursing positions on Pontiac, MI (1940), Grand Rapids, MI (1941), Toronto, Ontario (1942) and worked in private practise with husband Dr Rockel.
The Dingbat calendars started in February each year leaving the last page for January of the following year still attached, so the actual calendar dates to the previous year.
