Research Facts
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.
This adaptor for a baby's bottle was invented by an American dentist from Texas who spoke in Montreal around 1938; he was concerned about the bottles of the time, which were just long tubes through which the baby sucked; he believed they were causing infants to have dental problems later in life; he designed this adaptor to recreate more closely a baby naturally breastfeeding, where the baby uses more jaw motions to drink milk; unfortunately his product did not take off as bottle companies began to change their design almost immediately afterward.

Research Facts
Researching origin of the name "Brecht Feeder": It appears to refer to the use of a syringe-like tube, with attached nipple at one end and valve at the other. Found one reference with "Brecht" as a registered trademark, which may mean it refers to the tubing itself.

Research Facts
Collected by Maryanne Szuck and sister Alice Roeder, a retired nurse. The collection consists of various eras and types of invalid / infant feeders, infant milk bottles, medicine spoons, urinals and reference material.
Names associated with this item include: baby bottle, nurser, infant nursing bottle, antique baby bottles, glass baby Bottles, milk bottles, Victorian, Victorian baby, Victorian baby feeding bottle
Though the ‘Murder Bottle’ design of early glass and rubber infant feeders were unsanitary was outlawed by Buffalo, New York by 1897, they continued to be bought and used widely into the 1920s. A new elongated baby bottle with openings on both end of the bottle was created in 1894 called the ‘Banana Bottle’ or ‘The Allenbury Feeder’ that was easier to clean. It has been referred to as a ‘saviour’ due to it being the most hygienic bottle design on the market at the time, and was used into the 1950s.

Research Facts
Bought by donor from a workman who found this bottle and several others in a waste site while excavating for building the Sky Dome in the late 1980s.
Hospital for Sick Children Toronto supplied pasteurized cow milk to mothers at its clinic / entrance at Elizabeth and College Streets, ca. 1910-1915. "THE MILK SUPPLY. The Pasteurization Plant has now been in complete working order for the past two years, all milk used being scientifically pasteurized in our Laboratory. During the year 72 gallons of milk were daily pasteurized for in-patients and 602 bottles of baby food prepared for outside babies—a daily average of 60 babies. The milk used in the Hospital for the patients and the staff is all pasteurized." From 1911 Annual Report
See Heritage Toronto article regarding bottles produced by the Hospital for Sick Chldren. John Ross Robertson, benefactor of the Hospital, announced he would build a pasteurization plant for the Hospital in 1908. In 1909 a temporary location was set up on Elizabeth Street, The purpose-built facility at 54 LaPlante Ave. opened in January 1914. Milk was dispensed to the public and bottles were returned (the Hospital had its own bottles, and to encourage their return, the bottoms were rounded, making it impossible to stand them up). In April 1914, Toronto passed a law requiring all milk to be pasteurized. The Hospital for Sick Children stopped most pasteurization operations by 1928.

Brockway Machine Bottle Co. and Brockway Glass Co. Society for Historical Archaeology
Research Facts
From its opening in 1907, the Brockway Machine Bottle Co. was a product of the mechanized era. As the name implies, the company was formed to manufacture bottles by machine.
Initially, of course, Brockway only made wide-mouth bottles by semiautomatic machines, but the plant installed narrow-mouth machines in the early 1920's.
Brockway became one of the leading bottle producers in the U.S. and finally merged with the Owens-Illinois Glass Co. in 1988.
