St. Mary's Orphanage sous-fonds

  • CA ON00279 HF01-SF01
  • Sous-fonds
  • 1852-2015

This sous-contains fundraising documents pertaining to rural collections and the Orphans’ Festival which show that the Sisters needed support from the surrounding community in order to operate the orphanage. Articles, tickets, programmes, and receipts from the annual Orphans’ Festival show the importance the event held, not only to the Sisters but also to Hamilton citizens. Financial records further illustrate how much money was needed to care for the orphaned children. The account books detail the necessary items Sisters purchased to successfully run the orphanage. The fee books show how much parents paid to foster their children. These records also demonstrate the needs the Sisters had on outside resources, like government grants and surrounding community funding. Documents pertaining to regulatory compliance are also found, including the 1965 Children’s Institutions Act and Regulations which outlines the rules the orphanage had to follow in order to operate within the law. Correspondence on a variety of topics is also present in the collection, including finance, education, and daily operations. There are photographs which offer a “snapshot” into the life of the orphanage. These images depict Sisters working in the orphanage, the Orphans’ Festival, children’s communion celebrations, and the dining hall. The sous-fonds also contains records created by the Advisory Committee of Mount St. Joseph Orphanage. These records outline the types of work the committee did, including structural changes to the building. There are several summaries of the history of St. Mary’s Orphanage, and a brief summary of the history of Mount St. Carmel Infants’ Home. The registers offer significant information about the children who remained in the care of the orphanage. These list information such as the orphan’s name, date of birth, religious denomination, nationality, date of admission and discharge, date of death [if applicable], and who took the child after he or she was discharged. There are also registers that list information about children who stayed for day stays, as well as children who were moved into foster homes. The sous-fonds contains information about orphans who received their religious sacraments, as well as baptismal records. Also found personal folders and admission cards, which provide information about application and departure, correspondence and parental addresses and occupations.

UHN News

Series consists of the printed issues of UHN News. UHN News made its debut on November 13th, 2000. It was a title change to the existing “Caring Together” weekly newsletter and continued its volume and issue numbering. The first issue of UHN News was therefore Volume 4, Number 46. UHN News was published by the Department of Public Affairs & Communications for and about the staff of the University Health Network, but the newsletter was also available throughout the hospital and therefore easily accessible to patients and visitors. Other than the change in title, the other key transformation for the hospital’s newsletter was that it was now also available as a “virtual” newsletter on the home page of University Health Network’s Corporate Intranet. While the same core news and information found in the paper version would also appear on the Intranet site, the online version was also designed to provide an expanded, more immediate, and more in-depth news service. Over time, the online news content increased as the content in the printed newsletter decreased.

There were occasional errors in the numbering of issues and volumes. Most notably in 2011, issues 1-10 are printed as Volume 15 while all subsequent issues starting with number 11 from 2011 are incorrectly printed as Volume 16. In 2012, the Volume is still listed as 16 but the issue numbering restarts at number 1. Therefore there would be two different issues listed as Volume 16, Number 11 etc., one from 2011 and one from 2012. The issues for April 10, 2012 and May 7, 2012 are also both listed at Volume 16, Number 4, and the next issue for July is listed as Number 6. For identification purposes it is therefore important to note the dates of the issues and not simply the volume and issue number.

The collection of issues is incomplete. No issues from Volumes 5-7 have been transferred to the Archives. Issues 1-19 of Volume 12 (2008) were not transferred to the Archives. Additional issues may be missing from each volume. The print newsletter ceased publication in 2012 with Volume 16, Number 11 (December 10, 2012).
