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
Pharmeceutical companies presented gifts to graduating medical students to remind them to order from their business.
Sir William Osler, 1st Baronet, FRS FRCP (July 12, 1849 – December 29, 1919) was a Canadian physician and one of the four founding professors of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Osler created the first residency program for specialty training of physicians, and he was the first to bring medical students out of the lecture hall for bedside clinical training. He has frequently been described as the "Father of Modern Medicine" and one of the "greatest diagnosticians ever to wield a stethoscope". Osler was a person of many interests, who in addition to being a physician, was a bibliophile, historian, author, and renowned practical joker.
Book was published shortly prior to his death; he was age 70.
From the 'Preface to the Eighth edition: In the twenty years that have passed since the publication of the first edition, triennial revisions have appeared regularly, with one exception – to secure protection against an edition pirated in Great Britain, a fifth edition had to be issued not long after the fourth. Comparing the first edition with the present, very little remains of the original work. The essential groundwork has been, as far as possible, my personal experience in hospital and private practice, correlated with the general experience of the profession, as expressed in its literature. To try to keep the book up to date has been a pleasure and an ambition. Adequately to express my appreciation of the generous support accorded by my colleagues is impossible.
