Summary
Teaching Film Custodians abridged classroom version of a Cavalcade of America television series episode, "The Gift of Dr. Minot" (season 3, episode 20), which originally aired on April 12th, 1955 on ABC-TV.  This film re-enacts the research of Boston physician and Nobel Prize winner Dr. George Minot, who disregarded his own diabetic condition to develop a cure for pernicious anemia in 1922.  Concurrently, Canadian Dr. Frederick Banting (also a Nobel Prize winner) perfected insulin as a cure for diabetes, enabling Minot to conclude his experiment.
