Breakthrough: The Dramatic Story of the Discovery of Insulin, a Traveling Panel Exhibition
To lead visitors through this history, from the discovery of insulin in Toronto by Dr. Frederick Banting in 1921 and its first human trials in 1922 to its widespread use today, Breakthrough features reproductions from archives including those of the University of Toronto, Eli Lilly and Company, the Rockefeller Institute, the Joslin Clinic and the New York Academy of Medicine.
The two vista stand-alone display panels (approximately 10 feet wide by 7 feet tall each) include reproductions of photographs, medical texts, documents (Nobel prize citation, letters, medical notes, a telegram, and a newspaper article), and advertisements. In addition, the exhibition includes a silent 1932 industrial film of insulin production from Eli Lilly & Co.
