From the Lawrence Daily World for Sept. 7, 1906: "Baker University in Baldwin is beginning another year and it appears the enrollment this fall will be 1,100 or more. : There is growing interest in the medical field about the process of "local anesthesia" to render operations painless. It is not new to science but seems to be gaining popularity even though many older doctors are not yet convinced it is the best route to take."
