Custodial history

Records in this series were variously in the custody of the Department of Public Affairs and/or members/Chairs of the Committee, who were also members of this Department. The Committee’s records contain material from the Department of Medical Photography and files from the Public Relations Photo and Slide Library which were in their custody at the time of records transfer.

Scope and content

Series consists of minutes, correspondence, historical records and photographs created or collected by the Archives and Historical Committee. Material from the Department of Medical Photography and files from the Public Relations Photo and Slide Library are interspersed within these files. Some of this may be due to the dual roles of Committee members, but in the case of files 2.8.49 to 2.8.57 they appear to be files borrowed by the Chair of the Committee. No attempt has been made to rearrange these files according to their original provenance.

File 2.8.1 includes 2 photographs of Nuclear Cardiology from the early 1980s.

File 2.8.2 contains a photograph of a construction site at TGH in July 1977 and a patient handbook from TGH from [198-?].

Files 2.8.10 to 2.8.13 were originally kept in one binder and probably belonged to Peter Edwards, who was at one point Chairman of the Historical Committee. File names are taken from the divider titles.

File 2.8.16 includes a guide for the della Robia style plaques which hung in the Outpatient Clinical in the Mulock/Larkin Wing of the Toronto General Hospital.

File 2.8.30 includes copies of photographs from the 1940s that were made in 1978.
