Administrative history

The Toronto Western Hospital School of Nursing’s September Class of 1946 consisted of students who would have started the 3-year nursing program at the school in September 1943. These nursing students would have had to stay in residence together throughout their 3-year program. Their convocation was held on Tuesday June 11th, 1946. They were the 48th class of the School.

After graduation the class of 1946 had reunions every 5 years, and later every 2-3 years, up until their 60th reunion in June 2006. Class reunions included the February Class, but content of fonds only relates to the September Class. The full graduating class of 1946 consisted of 50 students.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Fonds consists of a scrapbook started by the Class President of the 1946 September Class, Margaret Smith, as well as a letter to the UHN Archives from class member Joyce Kinslow, outlining the origins of the scrapbook. The scrapbook was originally kept in a binder. Ms. Smith kept the scrapbook up to date for a span of 60 years by having a page or pages dedicated to each graduate. Graduates would send pictures and notes to Margaret throughout the years for inclusion on their page in the scrapbook. The scrapbook would be shared and updated at class reunions and subsequently came to be held by Joyce Kinslow. Affixed to the pages of the scrapbook are photographs, letters, typed and handwritten entries, business cards, announcements, newspaper clippings, obituaries, menus for official gatherings, and a commemorative booklet, <i>The Nurses’ Alumnae Association of the Toronto Western Hospital’s Diamond Jubilee 1898-1958</i>.
