Research Facts
Dr. H. Yates was a key member in the establishment of the Kingston General Hospital, purchasing many new tools and supplies in the 1840's. When the Faculty of Medicine at Queen's University was created, he became the Chair of the Science and Practice of Medicine and later was the Dean of the Faculty. It is probable that Dr. Yates' tools were left to his collegues at the Faculty of Medicine.

Research Facts
Evans and Wormull, formerly Evans and Stevens, first appeared in 1874; they were recognized as suppliers of medical instruments to the British army and navy. Evans & Co. was a surgical instrument maker working in London between 1676-1874.
This style of screw tourniquet was invented by Parisian surgeon Jean Louis Petit in 1718, and his design was used until the early 20th century; he was the first person to use the term 'tourniquet'.
