Everything you ever wanted to know about microtomes and related equipment.

Happy Wednesday (or Thursday) Netters
I'm in the process of a small project and need to see if you know a book or 
website that talks about early histology procedures. Who was the first one 
to use a fixative, dehydrant, clearing agent and infiltration wax? How we 
developed from jars to automatic processors, etc. My wrists are sore from 
surfing. I Googled up to 2,000,000 hits. I think I've developed carpal 
tunnel syndrome. My fingers are numb. Thanks in advacne (see)
