Research Facts
A later edition of this book, from 1937-1942, in print while Harold J. Kirby was Ontario's Minister of Health, has an illustration of the famous Dionne quintuplets on the front cover.
Forbes Godfrey was Ontario's first Minister of Health, and he was a doctor before entering the realm of politics. Dr. Godfrey wanted the government to do more to combat tuberculosis, as the disease was devastating Ontario's citizens. As a result of his efforts, a system of government supported tuberculosis hospitals was created. Dr. Godfrey was also a strong believer in vaccination. He was responsible for organizing the ministry of health from its beginnings, and he helped protect miners from silicosis; started industrial health programs; created public health clinics in remote areas, and began free immunization programs for Ontario school children.
