Research Facts
Helen MacMurchy Born January 7, 1862. Died October 8, 1953. In 1901 Helen graduated with a medical degree from the University of Toronto and interned as the first woman doctor with the Toronto General Hospital. She went on to be the first woman doctor to do post graduate studies at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. In 1909 she conducted a survey of the high infant death rates experienced in cities at the turn of the century. In 1914 she wrote a popular book, 'A Little Talk About Baby'.
In 1915 she was appointed the inspector of the feeble minded in Ontario. Sadly her actions to persuade the government that eugenics was the answer to preventing degenerate babies led to the wrongful sterilization of many immigrants.
Helen was the first editor of the Canadian Nurses Journal. In 1920 she was placed in charge of the federal government’s new Division of Child Welfare and was responsible for the contents of some of the government published Blue Books with advice on caring for children. These little books were published in multiple languages including Cree.
It was in the 1920’s that she made a special study of medical inspection of schools, child welfare and public health in England and the United States.
In 1934 she was inducted as Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE). In 1949 she was named one of the leading women doctors in the western world. In 1997 she was declared a Person of National Historic Significance.

Research Facts
The original portrait, painted by Dutch Baroque Rembrandt van Rijn in 1632, depicts a group of seven surgeons looking on as physician Nicolaes Tulp leads an anatomy lesson. It was commissioned to hang in the board room of the Guild of Surgeons, a group that Tulp had become a reader of three years before. Tulp is shown as the only man wearing a hat, showing his elevated position over his pupil, as he demonstrates how arm muscles are attached to the body using forceps. He was known to give theory lessons twice a week in Amsterdam with one public autopsy a year being conducted. The painting shows the 1632 autopsy that used the body of a criminal, an executed thief named Adriaen het Kint as their cadaver. The surgeon in the centre towards the back holds a sheet of paper that lists the names of all the men in participating in the lesson, many of whom would have paid for the honor of being included in the composition.
Though it was one of Rembrandt’s earlier works, The Anatomy Lesson remains one of his most well-known paintings; the skill is evident in the expressive, recognizable faces of the surgeons and the dynamic contrast between light and dark. Rembrandt does, however, some artistic liberties, particularly as the surgeon would have begun with opening the chest cavity in an autopsy as opposed to beginning with an arm.
This was also one of the first painting that Rembrandt signed with his forename as opposed to RHL which he had used on previous ones, likely showing his increasing confidence in his artistic abilities.

Research Facts
The seaweed is used to dilate the cervix, usually for a dilatation and curettage and/or an abortion.
Not many medical devices have been made from seaweed. But laminaria, or “sea-tangle” tents, were a standard part of the obstetrician's armamentarium in the late 19th and early 20th century. These slim cylinders, measuring 5–10 cm long, were dried stalks of the marine plant, Laminaria digitata. Inserted into the cervical canal, they absorbed water and slowly expanded, dilating the cervix. Laminaria tents were used to induce labour in non-urgent situations, such as anticipated cephalo-pelvic disproportion. Long before it became an issue for the natural birth movement, non-urgent induction was a controversial procedure. British obstetricians tended to support such intervention, but many of their Continental colleagues disagreed, preferring to risk the perils of obstructed labour rather than interfere with nature.
