After Dr. Henrietta Banting’s death, Women’s College Hospital received many letters. Some people made donations in her memory. They wanted to honour her accomplishments in medical research.
This letter reads in part:
“Please find enclosed a cheque for your medical research, in memory of Lady (Mrs. H.) Banting. She has made a very wonderful contribution to society personally but especially to the medical profession and research. We need more of her calibre in this world.”
