AU Experiment Station ~ 1918

Each morning George Temple fell in line in front of the History Building (Hurst Hall) for roll call. It was here that the calls were issued for volunteers to submit to being burned by experimental gases. Temple responded to that call seven times ... Most gas victims were stray dogs. "Hundreds and hundreds of them" running loose in the streets were picked up and gassed. Scientists and doctors studied the canines' reactions and the carcasses were shaved and dissected for examination and testing.
