Notes on an article by Nicolae Paulescu
Best, Charles Herbert, 1899-
[ca. Fall 1921]
1 note card ; 10 x 15 cm.
Item is a blue index note card. Notes have been made on both sides in Best's hand. The first side is initialed C.H.B. in the bottom corner. Although Paulescu's article indicated that he was obtaining positive results using pancreatic extract, the notecard indicates that the significance of Paulescu's work was not appreciated due to a misquotation, substituting the phrase 'non bon' for Paulescu's original 'non plus'.
MS. COLL. 76 (Banting), Box 62, Folder 6
