Profile of Frederick Banting
Banting, feeling his assistant had been neglected, split his portion of the Nobel money with Best… Banting was knighted in 1934… The farmhouse Banting was born in was outside Alliston, which is now called New Tecumseh… Banting and Best initially called their isolated hormone isletin, from the part of the pancreas known as the Islets of Langerhans. MacLeod insisted they use the term insulin, after the Latin for “island.”
