Wrinch Memorial Hospital fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1939-2015

The fonds is arranged into eight series: Files of the Hospital Administrator (1943-1961); Administrative records (1905-2010); Financial records (2002-2014); Hazelton Children’s Home (1967-2004); Media (1915-2009); Patient files (1903-1949); and Property records (1905-2015).

The first accession of records from Wrinch Memorial Hospital was arranged and described by Sally Easton in 1986. Those consist of the files of the administrator of Wrinch Memorial Hospital and comprise a single alphabetical subject series. These were described in detail at the file level. The date range of these files is from 1935 to 1961, but the bulk of the material includes dates between 1947 and 1952. Most of the files are concerned with financial matters: hospital claims, accounts, etc. Several deal with matters concerning the local First Nations population. A large number of files concern the B.C. Hospital Insurance Service (inaugurated in 1949), its officials, and its activities. Material in the files includes letters, telegrams, brochures, ledger pages, cheque stubs, photographs, copies of various government documents, and a variety of lists and printed forms. However, the majority of this series consists of correspondence. Most of the files date from the term of Selwyn Simons, who was Administrator from 1947 to 1952. Some material in the files relates to Simons' successor, Paul E. Russell; those items dated 1960-1961 relate to the term of Dr. J. E. Whiting, Medical Superintendent, although his name does not appear on them.

The second accrual of records was arranged and described by Kelly Rovegno in 2017. These records date from 1905-2010, although the predominant range is 1945-2000. This fonds contains files with personal information, which is protected under the law. Such files are identified on the file list; consult the archivist for further information.
