J. L. Weatherwax in 1931 refers in his book "Physics of Radiology" to  
the (then called) Memorial Hospital of New York using 4 gm. Radium  
packs for deep-seated tumor use.

Does anyone know of any other facilities that used such large  
quantities of radium either directly or in (then called) Radium  
Emanation Apparati?
