Finis Dunaway The discovery of insulin could be told as a story of heroic scientists forging new frontiers of medical knowledge to save human lives. Such accounts, though, render invisible the role of animals in bio- medical research and the relationships formed between human scien- tists and their animal subjects. In this issue’s Gallery essay, Matthew Klingle shows how visual images can complicate and enrich this human-centered narrative. Taking us to the University of Toronto in the early 1920s, Klingle looks at a series of photographs and other images of dogs used in diabetes research. He situates these pictures within the broader environmental context of an urban setting that provided university researchers with a steady supply of strays. Through a wide-ranging analysis of the visual record, Klingle addresses larger questions about the ethical debates over animal ex- perimentation—from the critiques of the antivivisection movement during the early twentieth century to the views of some diabetics and diabetes activists today. His essay offers a model for scholars inter- ested in representations of animals and illuminates the changing, contested meanings of images over time. The Author(s) 2018.
