Biographical history

Custodial history

Custody of the fonds was held by Dr. Gault throughout his career, a portion of which he kept in his office in the Faculty of Medicine at the Health Sciences Centre and another portion was kept at his home. The unit where Dr. Gault worked transferred his office files to the Founders' Archive in March 2003. Dr. Gault's son, Andrew, donated the records, which were kept at the family home, to the Founders' Archive in November 2003.
