Scope and content
The files in this series contain chronological lists of patients on whom surgery was performed by Dr. Bigelow (WGB) and (in the case of files 0094-5-0-4, -9, -10, -12, -13, and -37) other surgeons at the Toronto General Hospital (TGH) between 1949 and 1977. The lists were compiled between [1952?] and 1977.
With the exception of files 0094-5-0-1 (a comprehensive list of all surgeries performed by Dr. Bigelow between 1975 and 1977) and 0094-5-0-19, the files are specific to a particular type of surgery.
The files contain patient names and file numbers, dates of operation, dates of death (if applicable), and in some instances notes on particular problems encountered during surgery and/or the patient's post-operative results/ prognosis.
Information in files sometimes post-dates the date range in the file titles.
