An article by Dr, Charles Hayter "Making Sense of Shadows: Dr. James Third and the Introduction of X-rays, 1896-1902" (CMAJ, 1.11.1995)
"Abstract: The discovery of x-rays was announced by German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen in December 1895. This review of the introduction of the use of x-rays in Kingston, Ont., shows the rapidity of their adoption in Canadian medicine. By February 1896 "x-ray photographs" were being taken by Captain John Cochrane of the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston. Initially a scientific and popular curiosity, the new rays were quickly applied to medicine, and by the fall of 1896 the Kingston General Hospital had acquired its own x-ray apparatus. The hospital superintendent, Dr. James Third, became a leading practitioner and promoter of radiographic diagnosis and radiation therapy. He published, in 1902, the first comprehensive review of the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of x-rays by a Canadian physician. Third's writings reveal his technical knowledge, his organized approach to the application of radiography to clinical medicine and his cautious attitude. Like other physicians who have witnessed the introduction of new diagnostic techniques, Third feared that the new technology would usurp the physician's clinical skills.

Monochrome photograph of various doctors in training at the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, which may have been known as Trinity College at that time; shows classmates for Dr., James Third; printed on a thick light brown card with painted gold edges; there are twelve men, most of which are likely doctors in training, examining human cadavers; to the right of the image there are five men studying a cadaver that has the top of his head removed; to the left of the image there are three other men studying another cadaver with one man sawing into the leg; there are four other men in the center, with one man holding onto a leg of a cadaver and another holding an open book; the men are dressed in dark suits and white shorts and dark ties, most of whom are also wearing hats; they are also wearing material over their body, like an apron, to protect themselves against blood and fluid splatter such as both light and dark coloured fabric and a rubberized fabric; the cadavers are placed on tables; seven of the men are standing and five are sitting; the room is rather bleak, the windows in the background are covered with haphazard curtains of cloth, and the ground is covered in a deep sand or sawdust like substance; at the right side of the photograph, written vertically, is the name of the photographer and an address; the border around the image is dark magneta and the back of the photograph is blank and a light brown colour.
