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.

TheRetroRescuers, Vintage Hankscraft Baby Food Warmer Dish ~Periwinkle Blue: https://www.etsy.com/sg-en/listing/594103122/vintage-hankscraft-baby-food-warmer-dish
Research Facts
This dish was used to feed toddlers. Warm water would be poured into the hollow portion and plugged with a matching lid, which in this case has been replaced by a cork. The water inside the dish would keep the food warm. The ridged base and the heavy weight of the bowl kept toddlers from throwing the bowl on the ground, etc.
Similar items were made by a company called Hankscraft.

Research Facts
A later edition of this book, from 1937-1942, in print while Harold J. Kirby was Ontario's Minister of Health, has an illustration of the famous Dionne quintuplets on the front cover.
Forbes Godfrey was Ontario's first Minister of Health, and he was a doctor before entering the realm of politics. Dr. Godfrey wanted the government to do more to combat tuberculosis, as the disease was devastating Ontario's citizens. As a result of his efforts, a system of government supported tuberculosis hospitals was created. Dr. Godfrey was also a strong believer in vaccination. He was responsible for organizing the ministry of health from its beginnings, and he helped protect miners from silicosis; started industrial health programs; created public health clinics in remote areas, and began free immunization programs for Ontario school children.

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.
