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.

Research Facts
Sylvia Burkinshaw was born at Scarborough, Yorkshire, England in 1919 and died on Sunday May 1, 2011 at the Kingston General Hospital. Only daughter of John Frederick and Margaret Burkinshaw. Following graduation as a Registered Nurse at Scarborough Hospital and as a Midwife at Queen Charlotte's Maternity Hospital London, she served as a Nursing Sister in Queen Alexandra's Royal Naval Nursing Service through World War II. In 1950 she returned to civilian nursing at University College Hospital, London. An International Red Cross Scholarship award enabled her to travel to Canada to continue her health care career.

A pharmacopoeia, pharmacopeia, or pharmacopoea (literally, “drug-making”), in its modern technical sense, is a book containing directions for the identification of compound medicines, and published by the authority of a government or a medical or pharmaceutical society. Descriptions of preparations are called monographs. In a broader sense it is a reference work for pharmaceutical drug specifications.
Guy's Hospital is a National Health Services hospital in the borough of Southwark in central London. It is part of Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and one of the institutions that comprise the King's Health Partners, an academic health science centre. It is a large teaching hospital and is, with St Thomas' Hospital and King's College Hospital, the location of King's College London GKT School of Medical Education. The Tower Wing (formerly known as Guy's Tower) is the world's second tallest hospital building, standing at 148.65 metres (487.7 ft) with 34 floors. It is currently one of the tallest buildings in London.
The hospital dates from 1721, when it was founded by philanthropist Thomas Guy, who had made a fortune from the South Sea Bubble and as a publisher of unlicensed Bibles. It was originally established as a hospital to treat "incurables" discharged from St Thomas' Hospital. Guy had been a Governor and benefactor of St Thomas' and his fellow Governors supported his intention by granting the south-side of St Thomas' Street for a peppercorn rent for 999 years. Following his death in 1724, Thomas Guy was entombed at the hospital's chapel.
