Re: [Histonet] Hematoxylin Shortage??

  I can't correct you because I know even fewer facts, but the feeling around our part of the world at that time was that vendors were buying up powder so that we would be "forced" to purchse their ready-made product.  I guess we urbanites are known for our cynical world view.

The last time there was a "rumored" hematoxylin shortage, back in the 70's, 
it was some boat sinking with all the Campechium logs aboard. I recall some 
panic stockpiling of hematoxylin - the days when we made the stain ourselves 
with mercuric oxide. I think the sunken boat rumor was a figment of 
someones vivid imagination.

For all the hematoxylin historians out there, correct me if I am wrong.
