Research Facts
This second place award was for the outstanding student at the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing. Annual awards started in 1910 and ended at the closing of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing in 1974.
The first graduating class of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was in 1888; the school was created in order to educate nurses as the demand for them increased, as well as providing a labour force to the hospital. When the first nurses graduated, they were given a certificate of completion, twenty five dollars, and a nursing medal

Research Facts
Carnation is a brand of food products. The brand was especially known for its evaporated milk product created in 1899, then called Carnation Sterilized Cream and later called Carnation Evaporated Milk. The brand has since been used for other related products including milk-flavoring mixes, flavored beverages, flavor syrups, hot cocoa mixes, instant breakfasts, corn flakes, ice cream novelties, and dog food.
Carnation was founded as an evaporated milk company, but demand decreased with the increasing availability of home refrigeration throughout the 20th century. Carnation diversified its product portfolio after the 1950s and was acquired by Nestlé in 1984.
Dr. John Wallace (Jack) McDougall (1912-1999). Opened general practice at 35 Garden Street Brockville, across the street from the St. Vincent de Paul Hospital in July 1940 and retired in 1985. Graduated from Queen’s University Faculty of Medicine in 1937 and completed his internship in Buffalo NY, married and returned to Brockville in 1940.
Served in WWII in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps joining the No. 1 Field Ambulance Military Hospital eventually becoming its commanding officer at Terrace, B.C then going overseas with the No. 23 Canadian General Hospital in England. Returning to Brockville from the No. 24 General Hospital in December 1945 to resume his medical practice.
Dr McDougall was the local coroner for 20+ years and received numerous awards including From Governor General Roland Michener for his work with St. Johns Ambulance; member of the Brockville Kiwanis Club and Sussex Masonic Lodge No. 5.
