Research Facts
This is Dr. E. H. Botterell's modification of the McKenzie model; in 1938, Dr. Botterell modified McKenzie's tongs; Joseph Sachetti was the first patient they were used on; (1) the locking device controlling penetration of the points was unchanged; (2) the points were greatly shortened and the shoulders were enlarged; in sum, it then became easier for the patient to lie on his side; penetration of the dura was more difficult; the points continued to be inserted into the skull at right angles to the line of traction; these tongs were taken overseas and used during the war in the Basingstoke Neurological and Plastic Surgery Hospital, RCAMC; has a shoulder on the pointed post to limit the penetration into the skull; incision in skin required; shoulder was not always effective; not in use in 1976.

Research Facts
The No. 4 Canadian General Hospital was organized in Toronto on 25 March 1915 by the University of Toronto. Stationed at: Shorncliffe, 28 May - 15 October 1915; Salonika, Greece 9 Nov 1915 - 18 May 1916; Kalamaria 19 May 1916 - 17 Aug 1917; Basingstoke, 18 Sept 1917 - 2 July 1919. Officers Commanding: Colonels T. A. Roberts, W. A. Hendry, H. C. Parsons with Nursing Matron A. J. Hartley. General hospitals were originally equipped for 520 beds, but were increased in 1915 to 1,040 after which date they varied in bed capacity as necessary up to 2,000. In 1915 a large Allied expeditionary force landed at Thessalonik (Salonika) as the base for operations against pro-German Bulgaria. This culminated in the establismnet of the Macedonian or Salonika Front. Further information concerning the 20 hospitals stationed in Salonika during 1915-1919 can be found in the book "Under the Devil's Eye: The British Army in Salonika, 1915-1918" by Alan Wakefield and Simon Moody, published by Sutton. Further information can be found in the donor file.

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.
Invalid feeders are designed to provide liquid or semi solid nourishment in time of illness or incapacity. There are many different shapes for invalid feeders. Some of the shapes are defined as infant or invalid feeders, however it seems that each manufacture used both terms interchangeably. The boat shaped, which looks very similar to a gravy boat, originally evolved from the pap boat shape. It has a straight spout, main opening in the top, and an open handle in the back. This is also known as an infant feeder prior to the development of baby milk bottles. Manufacturers would market this item as both invalid and infant feeders depending on the market they are targeting.
