Object statement
Pamphlets (4), relating to information about penicillin and the influenza vaccine, paper, produced by Commonwealth Serum Laboratories, Parkville, Victoria, Australia, 1958-1959, printed by Harris-Williams Press, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia / Renown Press, Carnegie, Victoria, Australia, 1958-1959
The Commonwealth Serum Laboratories (CSL) was established in Melbourne in 1916 to produce antitoxins and vaccines when supply from overseas became unreliable during World War I. The organisation went on to play an extremely important role in public health and in medical science research in Australia. For example, it produced insulin, penicillin and polio vaccines, often long before they were available in other countries. It has done pioneering research on the production of antivenoms for snakes, spiders and the blue ringed octopus.

These pamphlets are examples of how CSL communicated product information to doctors and patients during the late 1950's.

These pamphlets are a relevant addition to the Museum's collection of material from CSL and augment the health and medicine collection.

Written by Erika Dicker
Assistant Curator, 2007.
These pamphlets were produced by Commonwealth Serum Laboratories in Melbourne, Victoria between 1958 and 1959. They were printed by Harris-Williams Press Pty Ltd and Renown Press Pty Ltd.

CSL was founded in 1916 as the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories, to meet the demand for locally produced biopharmaceuticals in a country isolated by war. Throughout its history CSL has been a leading national investor in research and development. CSL was the first to supply Australia's public with such life-saving products as Insulin, Penicillin, and the Polio Vaccine.

In 1994 after a period as a corporatised government company CSL was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.
