Name of creator
The Academy of Medicine was founded on March 20, 1874, as the Ottawa Medico-Chirurgical Society. Its current name, the Academy of Medicine Ottawa, was adopted on December 30, 1946. This association of medical doctors met regularly since the 1870's to study issues of mutual concern and to discuss medical papers, many of them presented by invited lecturers from abroad.
Scope and content
Records of the Academy include minutes (1874-1985), chronological correspondence (1893-1994), annual report (1960-1962), scrapbooks, and account books (1922-1962). Also contains photographs of local doctors involved in the Academy. Old medical instruments from the 19th and 20th century are also in the holding. Researchers interested in either the history of medicine in Ottawa or the evolution of medical Knowledge will find a wealth of original information in this fonds. Of particular interest to historians of Ottawa is the Dr. Henry Small Collection which consists mainly of scrapbooks documenting the development of medicine in Ottawa.
