Research Facts
This is an Alumna reunion of the Hamilton General Hospital Training School Class of 1946. Verna Mae Sproule (1 May 1922 – 2003), the mother of the artifact donor, was a member of the graduating class; Sproule also briefly worked at Kingston General Hospital as a scrub nurse for Dr. Bingham. The donor indicates that this was likely the 50 year reunion.
The Hamilton General Hospital training school for nurses was an apprenticeship style program that began in 1890; the program was initially two years, but was expanded to a three-year program led by the head nurse and physicians; it involved formal instruction and on the job training; the Hamilton General Hospital School of Nursing discontinued in 1973 when Mohawk College took over the program.

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.

Ann Baillie was a truly wonderful // person, dearly loved by all the students and we were very fortunate to have // her as our Superintendent of Nurses. // We were also very fortunate to be in the School of Nursing at K. G. H. // when there was so many changes for the improvement and better conditions // in the hospital and School of Nursing. // We were the first class of 1928 to occupy the New Nurse's Residence and // to have a Class Room of which we were very proud. We watched with excitement // and interest of the erection of the Ann Baillie Residence. Of cours, there // was the noise, dust which we endured when we were on night duty. // Our class were not all together, we were separated some at George Street // Residence. We were moved from one location to another, Doran, Watkins, and // finally to Nickle. Well I remember those stairs at Watkins to the 3rd floor. // There were about 35 students in our class, through the discomfort of many // changes, we were young, cheerful, happy and we built up comradship (sp). We helped // one another and worked hard from 7 AM to 7 PM with 2 hours off if your work was // completed. As a Probie we were off duty at 4:30 PM. // To begin our day, every morning before 7AM we assembled in the long // corridor between Douglas and Empire. There was a great deal of noisy chattereing // between us. Then precisely at 7AM someone would say "Here she comes" and all at // once we would form a straight line at attention. There was complete silence // and we would all say Good Morning Miss Baillie. We had prayers and given // the assignemtns of the day before going on duty. // Then came moving day to the new residence. We previously asked Miss Baillie // if we could have our closest friends rooms near one another and the request was // granted. // At the Ann Baillie Residence we had a beautiful sun room, very spacious, // bright, cheerful, painted a soft green. It was restful and relaxing. The // bookcases were empty, but it wasn't long until they were filled by generous // people. I think Mrs. Etherington had something to do with donating the books. // There was a piano and we were very fortunate to have a very talented nurse // who gave freely of her time to play for us such selections as Canadian Cappers // and to play for sing songs, etc. // There was a lounge room and the Class Room. The Class Room was very well // equiped (sp) with a hosptial bed. After instructing us in bed making, Miss Acton // our nursing instructor and well I can remember - asked me to come up and make up // the bed before all the class. I just about dropped thru the floor. A great // deal of emphasis was put on how to make a bed properly and Mitre the corners // just so. // We were taught by the Doctors, W.T. Connell, McGegor, MacCullum, Austin, Bogart, // Gibson, Ehterington, Matheson, J. C. Connell and other Doctors who gave their time."; handwritten: "In conclusion those of us who resided at the Anne Baille // had many memories, of this Anne Baillie Residence of over 60 yrs."
