Research Facts
Dr. George trained in Canada and Scotland, with a specialty in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and began working at Kingston General Hospital in 1963.
These prescriptions were written around the same time that penicillin came to the community.
Many pharmaceutical abbreviations are used in these pages, some of which include "t.i.d.p.c.", which means "three times daily after food", "Rx", which means recipe, and "mitte", which means "send" or "number of tablets provided", and "Sig", which means "write on the label".

Research Facts
Sir Henry Wellcome was born in the U.S.A. in 1853, and moved to the UK in 1880 to found a pharmaceutical company with his friend Silas Burroughs. Wellcome established laboratories and funded scientists developing antitoxins, etc. He was a lover of medical history and had a collection of many objects relating to it. When Wellcome died in 1936, a charity intended to advance medical research and history was created according to his will. This grew over the 20th century into the Wellcome Trust of today, worth $33.5 billion CAN. The Wellcome Collection, a free medical museum and library, was founded in 2007.
Wellcome Excerpta Therapeutica was published in different editions from approximately 1883 to 1976.
Formerly known as the Eastern Hospital for the Insane, the Brockville Psychiatric Hospital opened in 1894; in 1903 the School of Nursing opened with one student who was given a two year course in nursing the mentally ill, this was one of Ontario's first nursing programs to specialize in psychiatric care; early in the 20th Century, the population expanded to 800 patients with as many as 100 patients at work on the grounds daily, the facility had a bakery, farm, garden, and a variety of shops including a butcher, tailor and carpenter (none of which are operational today); systems of treatment used throughout the years consisted of hydrotherapy, electroconvulsive therapy and vocational therapy; in 2000 the hospital was officially transferred from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group.
