The Frosst Dingbat Calendars. Niagara Apothecary
Donor’s remarks
Research Facts
From 1915 until 1996, health professionals all across Canada received a calendar which featured the healing efforts of the Dingbats. Charles Edward Frosst founded the Canadian company that bore his name until 1965 when it was taken over by a major American manufacturer to become Merck-Frosst. Charles Frosst engaged the artist, William Dudley Burnett Ward, to paint an appealing calendar for distribution to his firm's audience. Over the course of 81 years there have been a long succession of artists following Ward.
The Dingbat calendars were discontinued as a result of a Canadian industry's association decision that the Dingbat promotion was unfair competition.
Gladys (Millar) Rockel graduated from Kitchener Waterloo Nursing College Class of 1939; nursing positions on Pontiac, MI (1940), Grand Rapids, MI (1941), Toronto, Ontario (1942) and worked in private practise with husband Dr Rockel.
The Dingbat calendars started in February each year leaving the last page for January of the following year still attached, so the actual calendar dates to the previous year.

Research Facts
Pinkham Co. consigned its records to accessible archives, unlike other such companies (after its
demise); trademark face and "Yours for Health" Archives given to Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger
Library on the History of Women in America, at Radcliffe College; vegetable compound first
marketed in 1875, challenging "heroic" medicine (bleeding, etc.) with botanical blends; contained
true and false unicorn root, pleurisy root, life-root, black cohosh, fenugreek seed and
19% alcohol; probably came from one of the major botanical therapy digests ("American Dispensatory"
by John King); the Panic of 1873 ruined her husband, who had never been secure, so at age
56 she went into business; appealed a great deal to women, and they used this (she and her sons);
Lydia was born in 1819 and died in 1883, but for 20 years after, women were still receiving answers
to their letters, signed by Lydia (uncovered by a photographer who showed her tombstone in
"Ladies' Home Journal" in 1904; song ("American Health Quackery", p. 62); she was a folk heroine;
advertising power of children so great, Lydia's granddaughters began appearing; over the years,
every ingredient changed ... except the alcohol; after many public attacks on the alcohol content
they changed the composition and never regained its popularity (in 1904 had 20.6% alcohol); sold
because of boldly feminist approach; claims varied - increased fertility ("A baby in every bottle")
- relief from cramps and PMS - ; all sorts of "family" advice given; "Write to Mrs. Pinkham"
- actually the widow of Lydia Pinkham's son (not quite false, just misleading); still around
in 1957; mid-1920's, 15% alcohol; 1938 contained gentian, black cohosh, true and false unicorn,
life-root, pleurisy root, dendelion, chamomile, a little vitamin B1, and 15% alcohol; in 1957,
also contained licorice, Jamaica Dogwood and only 13.5% alcohol (pills had Jamaica Dogwood,
pleurisy rot, licorice and iron); had 3 sons, named Dan, Will and Charles,and a daughter named
Aroline, who married William H. Gove; husband Isaac died in 1889; by 1881 grossing $30,000/
month; Pinkham's "Guide for Women" a great success; initially four pages, by 1901 ran to 62
pages in five languages; compound sold in many foreign countries by the 1900's; "There was a
bad moment in China when it was discovered that only married women were buying the compound.
Investigation showed that the trouble lay in the Chinese name for Vegetable Compound which
had been most ineptly translated as 'Smooth Sea's Pregnancy Womb Birth - Giving Magical 100
Per Cent Effective Water'." (Holbrook); family-run until 1968 when sold to a pharmaceutical
firm; 1972 operations moved to Puerto Rico; 1980's still being made; Lydia was very independent
woman who definitely supported the women's liberation movement, although it was not labeled as
such back then; often printers only had Lydia Pinkham's likeness, and so when Queen Victoria
died, it was actually Lydia's picture they used, as they did when several famous women died
