Research Facts
There were forty-two students in Class of 1932: using the class list the names that are not legible are listed here:
"Front Row - L - R - Emma Smith -- Miss Gill Miss Wilson Miss Acton Miss Armery - Miss Livine // Miss DERBYSHIRE // 2nd Row - Lori McMaster - Elsie DAVIS - Muriel Keyes - Gertrude RANSOM - Adele BENEDICT - Irene Campbell // CORDELIA HUTSON - Gladys O'Day // 3rd Row: Norma Clark - Helen Spafford - Billie Seager - Ailene Toland - Kelen Akroyd - Mahel Johnson // Geraldine Fraser - Isabelle Hendrick"
The first official graduating class of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was in 1888; the school was created in order to educate nurses as the demand for them increased, as well as providing a labour force to the hospital. When the first nurses graduated, they were given a certificate of completion, twenty five dollars, and a nursing medal. Over the years, nurses were sometimes given pins and/or rings or other memorabilia to commemorate their graduation from the school.

Research Facts
A. B. S. & C. stands for Aloin, Belladonna, Strychnine and Cascara; despite poisonous ingredients and the designation of poison on the label, these pills were often used to treat habitual constipation.
C. E. Jamieson & Co. Limited was the name of the company from 1944 until it became Jamieson Laboratories Ltd. in 1998.
The D in diamond symbol embossed on the bottom indicates the bottle itself was made by Canadian glass manufacturer Dominion Glass Company in Hamilton, Ontario.

“The Historical Apothecary Compendium” by Daniel A. Goldstein
https://www.southworld.net/acacia-senegal-an-anti-inflammatory-medicinal-plant/
Research Facts
Used as an anti-inflammatory agent, eases stomach and throat pain, and helps with weight loss management. Has been in use for 4000+ years as food, medicine and in arts (used as glue by Ancient Eygptians). It comes from a liquid substance taken from the plant dissolved into water and forming a gum. Fibres in the gum lead to weight loss by making patients feel full. Used as flavouring, clouding agent and as a stabilizer in drinks.
