If you are near a good university, you may want to check out some of the old
original journal articles.  The American Journal of Physiology just
published a review in Feb 1998, "Contributions of the American Journal of
Physiology to the discovery of insulin".  Here is a direct link, if it
works:  http://ajpendo.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/274/2/E207

The references in this article may lead you somewhere.  Hopefully to an
original article in which is published the methods used, i.e. "Collip, J. B.
Delayed manifestation of the physiological effects of insulin following the
administration of certain pancreatic extracts. Am. J. Physiol. 63: 391-392,
1923."

The university libraries are wonderful places to wonder in.  I hope some of
this may help direct you.
