In her valuable history of the arrival of the news of etherisation in Australia and its implementation by many doctors and dentists, titled One Grand Chain, the late Dr Gwen Wilson asserted that the dentist and the doctor who pioneered etherisation in Australia, Belisario and Pugh... were charged by the authorities with possession of an illicit still". This paper examines the evidence for the truth or otherwise of this assertion, in relation to Dr Pugh.
