  • Notes 
    • Of all the inmates of the Waterloo County House of Industry and Refuge throughout the years none was better known than Bismark, the deaf mute who spent his waking hours trudging up and down Frederick Street within the bounds of poor-house property dressed in the red coat of A British soldier. Poor old Bismark, with his wooden gun and his hat full of paper clippings. The Ontario Anatomy Act had no terrors for him, but his lifeless body was the first sent from Berlin to Toronto under its provisions to be a subject for scientific research.1a
