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.
A 1953 article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal states that Sedicin is sold by pharmacists without a prescription, and is advertised as a safe remedy for insomnia and nervousness; the author recommended the medication not be indiscrimately sold due to possible toxic effects, such as purpuric eruptions
