Carl W. Renstrom was an Omaha, Nebraska businessman; the creator of Tip-Top Products Company. He began selling hair products made of metal in 1936, and was a success. During the Second World War, he re-tooled his machines to create military wire reels, barbed wire throws, and land mine crates, After the war, he converted to plastics, selling the company to Rayette Co. (later Faberge) in 1964 for twenty-five million dollars.

Research Facts
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.
