Custodial history

This collection was transferred from the Ayr Women;s Hospital Aid Association to the Ayr Branch of the Region of Waterloo Library. In 2017, it was then transferred to the Region of Waterloo archives.

Scope and content

This series contains the minute books of the Ayr Women's Hospital Aid Association, detailing the nature of their quarterly meetings, along with the results of their fund raising, what the funds were spent upon, what they planned to do in the future and the election of the executive. Typical minutes note who attended, motions voted upon, amounts raised since the last meeting, news from the Ontario Hospital Association (the mother organization) and notes on the entertainments provided for that meeting.

The Association was founded in 1927, which is when the minutes begin, and in March of 1956 the decision was made to reduce the Association to two meeting a year due to declining attendance. The minute book, although less than half filled, stops there, with no evidence for any meeting after March of that year. Series is arranged chronologically.
