Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; the Penkala-Moster Co. was established in 1906 by Eduard Penkala and Edmund Moster to manufacture Penkala's new invention of the mechanical pencil; the company was successful and diversified into writing instruments and accessories patented by Penkala; a second factory was eventually opened up in Berlin; the company still continues to this day; an ink blotter was used to blot ink and prevent it from runnig, smearing, or smudging
