Files 2.50-2.57 relate to the Ontario Cancer Treatment and Research Foundation.

Dr. Ash probably brought these files with him to the Ontario Cancer Institute when he became Director. Files have been arranged as close as possible to the order in which they were found, although the original order had probably been tampered with prior to their transfer to the Archives.
