A neat fact I learned today: the conference where the trial results showing that a progesterone pill (i.e. the Pill) blocked ovulation in women took place in the Laurentians in Quebec! The results were presented at the 1955 Laurentian Conference on Endocrinology.
I couldn’t find confirmation of where the 1955 conference was held, but numerous sources have stated that the conference was regularly held at Mont-Tremblant in the 1950s.
Here’s a link to a PBS timeline on the history of birth control that was pretty interesting. They even include info on birth control in ancient times! http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/pill/timeline/index.html
