Expected folds, 6"" x 10"" when opened and laid flat A wonderful archive of pieces revolving around the research and achievements of Frederick Banting, who received the Nobel Prize in 1923 at age 32, for the discovery of insulin. Today he still attains the status of the youngest Nobel laureate in the area of Physiology. Later in his career he was knighted and judged the most famous Canadian of his time. It is of additional interest that Banting's Nobel prize was received by him with controversy, as the Nobel Committee decided to award Banting and Macleod the Nobel Prize instead of Banting and his research partner Best. This decision of the Nobel Committee made Banting furious. He felt that the prize should have been shared between him and Best, and not between him and Macleod who was the Professor at the University of Toronto. To give credit to Best, Banting decided to share his cash award with him. Macleod, in turn, shared his cash award with Collip. Banting's Nobel Prize for insulin has been much debated. However, Macleod played a central role in the discovery of insulin, by providing the research scientists with the laboratory, equipment and funding to continue their research. It was also he who supported the project from the beginning, and it is also most likely that Macleod's contacts in the scientific world helped the team in getting a speedy recognition of their discovery."
