Canadian dollar

Last month, we asked you to estimate how much Drs. Banting and Best were paid by the University of Toronto for the original insulin patent back in 1923. 

More than 100 people had the correct answer ($1… Canadian).

But nobody replied faster than Joanne Cunha from Dallas, Texas.  Joanne is originally from Canada and is mom to a 12-year old daughter with type-1 diabetes.  Congratulations Joanne!

Now, $1 might not seem like much.  But remember this was in 1923.  Back then, $1 could buy an entire 6-pack of beer (Moosehead?)… which Banting and Best probably split to celebrate.
