Research Facts
Parke-Davis and Company was founded in Detroit, Michigan by Dr. Samuel P. Duffield, a physician and pharmacist. In 1860 Dr. Duffield owned a small drugstore at the corner of Gratiot and Woodward Avenues. Dr. Duffield made a variety of pharmaceutical preparations, including Hoffman’s anodyne and mercurial ointment, but was overwhelmed by the operations of the business.
In 1871 the company sent expeditions to Central and South America and the West Indies in search of medicinal plants. The company produced an herbal laxative drug Cascara found from Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest

Doreen Appleton Mainse; "Ongwanada: Support, Respect, Choices"
Research Facts
Ongwanada was founded in 1948 as a tuberculosis sanatorium, it evolved into a chronic care hospital, a facility for children and adults with developmental disabilities and most recently, as a non-profit organization providing community-based support to approximately 600 individuals and their families in Kingston and eastern Ontario (2017).
Ongwanada was founded on August 8, 1948 by Dr. Bruce Holmes Hopkins, a persevering and dedicated physician who campaigned for over twenty years to establish a Kingston sanatorium. The building had been constructed in 1942 as a hostel for women working at Alcan during World War Two, and in 1946 was converted into a veterans hospital. Dr. Hopkins went to great lengths to transform the makeshift structure into "Ongwanada," the Ojibwa word for "our home."
The 1950s were peak years for Ongwanada Sanatorium, with an array of new programs, a steady demand for beds, and a facility so picturesque that newlyweds posed for pictures on the grounds. Towards the end of the decade, however, as improved drug treatments made months and years of bed rest unnecessary, Ongwanada experienced a crisis of empty beds. In the face of government plans to shut Ongwanada down, Dr. Hopkins and members of the board fought tenaciously for its future.
A new direction emerged in 1967 with the gradual transfer of 100 children with severe developmental disabilities from large and overcrowded facilities. In April 1968 Ongwanada further extended its services to chronic care patients with the opening of a thirty-bed unit. The tuberculosis work continued through a combined TB and respiratory disease unit. In keeping with its broader mandate the sanatorium was renamed Ongwanada Hospital in 1971, the same year Dr. Hopkins died.
Doreen Appleton (maiden name) attended Queen's Nursing Science School from 1951-1952, Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing from 1952-1955, and Queen's University from 1955-1956. Ms Appleton worked at Ongwanada Sanitarium in the summer of 1956, Public Health in Napanee and at schools etc. in the late 1950s. She worked part time during the 1960s at KGH, returned part time in 1977 and at Fraser Armstrong Patient Center from 1979-1992, and a doctor's office until she retired in 1996.
