Annual Reports - Wellesley School of Nursing

Sub-series contains annual reports created by the Directors of the Wellesley School of Nursing. The majority of the reports are the ones sent to the Department of Health, and then the College of Nurses of Ontario to register the school. Included with some of these are the reports by the Department inspectors as a result of their visits to the Nursing School. The file also contains annual reports written for the Wellesley Hospital Board of Directors, and a variety of correspondence and questionnaires from other Nursing ruling bodies including the Canadian Nurses' Association and the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario.


Sub-series contains various parts of nursing uniforms worn by Wellesley School of Nursing students and staff. Included are female and male uniforms, bibs, aprons, caps, and capes. The majority of the items have been grouped by type (caps, bibs, aprons etc.) with some exceptions. The capes have been described as stand alone items because of their individual nature. Also three full uniforms (dress, bib, apron, cuffs, collars) have been grouped together because that is how they came into the Archives.

Graduation and year pins

File contains the Wellesley Hospital School of Nursing year pins and graduation pins. The year pins were given to students at the start of their 3rd year and the graduation pins were handed out at graduation. Unlike other hospital nursing schools, the Wellesley pin stayed the same from 1915-1974. The graduating class of 1975 did not receive their graduation pins. The Lion rampant used for both pins is from the Wellesley Hospital crest which Dr. Herbert Bruce received permission from the Duke of Wellington (Wellesley) to use the family's crest as the Hospital's crest.

Graduating class photographs

Sub-series contain photographs of the various aspects of the Wellesley Hospital School of Nursing's graduation week. Included are graduate composites, photographs of the ceremony itself, candid after reception shots, as well as photographs of various graduation week events such as the mother-daughter tea, breakfast, and Hospital walk-through by the graduates.

Filled with newspaper clippings, correspondence, cards, programmes, and photographs covering Grace Bolton's history with the Wellesley, the history of the Nursing school, the Hospital, and the Alumnae activities during World War II and beyond.
Scrapbook is not completely in order - First several pages are out of order followed by pages starting in 1933, when Grace Bolton graduated from the Wellesley. The pages are in order by year after this until the end when there was a single plastic sleeve filled with many items place together. Starting with letter from the Suntrap Residential School in the United Kingdom, these items have each been given their own sleeve. The majority of the pages are double sided - with items on both sides of the page.
