Name of creator
The Special Treatment Clinic for the treatment and control of venereal diseases was established in the Out-Patient Department of the TGH in 1915. Until 1933 treatments were jointly subsidized by matching grants from the Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario. Federal assistance stopped in 1933, but the province continued to support the Clinic.
Dr. C.H. Hair was appointed Head of the Clinic in 1915. Dr. Gordon Bates was appointed as Head of the Clinic in 1920, and continued to serve as Director until [1949?].
Scope and content
Sub-series consists of minutes of clinic staff meetings, policy statements and medical notes issued by clinic administrators for the direction of staff in providing treatment and complying with Ontario Department of Health regulations and procedures concerning the reporting and treatment of venereal disease cases, correspondence of the Director of the Clinic, and statistics compiled by the Clinic documenting the volume and type of treatment provided.
