Research Facts
Contained sugar, calamus root, orange peel, Peruvian bark, gentian root, columbo root, rhubarb, cinnamon, cloves, and alcohol; to avoid being taxed as many proprietors were c. 1906 for having mainly alcoholic "medicines", they reduced alcohol from 39% to 25% and increased amount of cinchona and sepentaria.
An experiment by Dr. A. J. Read showed that using various patent medicines as "fuel", Hostetter's Bitters kept the lamp burning for 4 minutes, while the second closest was Peruna at 2 min. 40 sec., and the ration of normal beer only burned for 20 seconds; basically a compound of cheap whiskey, obviously with more than the advertised 25% alcohol by volume (used only a tablespoonful); formula was originally a prescription of Dr. Jacob Hostetter used for colic, constipation and "the Intermittents" - a fever during that time.
When he retured in 1853, consented to allow his son, David, to manufacture and market it; marketing very important, so well known that when war started in 1861, War Department bought the bitters by cartload for the Union Army.
In 1862 published first Almanac; for many years it contained 47% alcohol by volume probably helped the army's courage, if not their medicinal needs.
Partner Smith died in 1874 and the firm's name then became "The Hostetter Co."; in 1958, the company was dead; preferred testimonials from actual physicians; actually sold in saloons in Alaska; daily dose equivalent to 1 1/2 ounces of whiskey; later upped % alcohol from 25% to 37%, claiming this amount of alcohol was needed to hold the ingredients in solution; in 1906, chemists reported analysis showed 43% alcohol by volume.

Research Facts
The donor comes from a long medical family with roots starting in Budapest, Hungary. These items are associated with the first multilingual hospital in Canada, Central Hospital, 333 Sherbourne Street, Toronto. The hospital was founded by her late husband Dr. John Rekai, and his brother Dr. Paul Rekai in 1957. They were immigrant doctors from Hungary who recognised the need for a hospital catering to the growing multilingual, non- English speaking population in 1950s Toronto. The hospital closed in 1996, but there are plans (2006) to reopen it as an ambulatory care center.
