In 1962, Women's College Hospital Board of Directors moved to send a letter to the Lieutenant Governor inviting Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother to grant her patronage to the hospital. The Queen Mother consented to act as the Patron of the hospital. Women's College Hospital was the only hospital in Canada to receive this honour.
Throughout her patronage, Women's College Hospital received letters of encouragement from Clarence House (the royal home and official residence of the Queen Mother), official portraits, and visits to the hospital by The Queen Mother. The Queen Mother passed away on March 30, 2002.
The collection is arranged into twelve series and consists of records related to the royal patronage of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother to Women's College Hospital. The collection contains correspondence, programmes, records related to the funeral of The Queen Mother, records related to the Festival of Ontario in 2002, and a handwritten account of The Queen Mother's visit to Women's College Hospital in 1965.
