Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; there may have been a cover originally on this dispenser, since there are two holes near where the spool of floss sits and there are remnants of rubber in the spool
