Custodial history

The personal papers and teaching materials of Dr. A.R. Cox were retained in the Dr. Kenneth B. Roberts Historical Collection in the Health Sciences Library after Dr. Cox left the Faculty of Medicine in 1987. They were found in the Historical Collection and transferred to the Faculty of Medicine Founders’ Archive in October of 1999 by Dr. John Crellin, the John Clinch Professor of Medical History. Dr. Cox donated further textual material and audio cassettes in January 2001. In May 2002, Dr. Cox donated additional textual material, slides and photographs to the archive. In 2006, further papers (28 boxes) relating to Dr. Cox as Dean of the Faculty of Medicine were transferred from the university archive.

Immediate source of acquisition


When the papers of Dr. A.R. Cox arrived at the Faculty of Medicine Founders’ Archive, there was some degree of order present. Files were clearly labelled with original titles used in earlier office procedures. This formed the framework for further arrangement and description of the collection. When the 2006 accrual was added to the collection, some reference numbers to previously arranged files were changed. The previous reference number is noted in the finding aid where applicable.
