Research Facts
After the outbreak of the War of 1812, the Loyal and Patriotic Society of Upper Canada was founded. In 1817, it had gold and silver medals struck in England to be distributed to the militia. Difficulty arose in selecting those to receive the medals. Also, controversy developed over the right of anyone other than the Sovereign to confer medals for military service. As a result, the medals were deposited in the Bank of Upper Canada and never awarded. They were melted down, and the sale of the metal added to the funding for the building of York-- now Toronto-- General Hospital.

Research Facts
Dr. Bernard Siegfried Weiss (1697-1770) was a German anatomist and taught surgery and anatomy at Leyden from 1719 til his death; considered one of the greatest teachers of anatomy of his era. Introduced the exacting method of accurately depicting anatomical illustration by using a technique of placing nets with square webbing at specified intevals between the artist and the anatomical specimen and copying the images using the grid patterns.
In the 1950 – 60s this portrait collection was compiled by Dr. Thomas Gibson, and later by Dr. Etherington, from old publications to create a historical medical gallery of pioneers of modern medical sciences for teaching medical students at Queen’s University, Kingston. Many of these prints do not indicate the date of the publication or source. Original prints are heavily glued to thick paper backing. Prints were framed at Kirkpatrick’s Art & Flower Store in Kingston, Ontario, as noted on the blue paper labels on the reverse.
