Custodial history

The materials found in this collection were stored in a large scrapbook by Dr. Ian Rusted. The scrapbook remained with Dr. Rusted while articles were being collected and added to the scrapbook. The scrapbook was eventually stored in the Kenneth B. Roberts Historical Collection of the Health Sciences Library under the care of Dr. John Crellin, John Clinch Professor of Medical History. It was transferred to the Founders’ Archive in October of 1999.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of material (mostly newspaper articles) relating to the planning, construction, staffing, and administration of the Medical School at Memorial University and the Health Sciences Centre in which it operates. There are photographs of the first staff members and the first medical students to work at the School. Fonds is composed of the following series:

  1. Miscellaneous Faculty of Medicine Material, 1968-1978
  2. Photographs, 1970-1974
  3. Newspaper articles, 1967-1979

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition

The Faculty of Medicine Scrapbook was created and maintained by Dr. Ian Rusted who later gave it to the Kenneth B. Roberts Historical Collection. Dr. John Crellin, John Clinch Professor of Medical History and curator of the historical collection, deposited the scrapbook in the Founders’ Archive in October of 1999. Work was begun on the Faculty of Medicine Scrapbook in November, 1999, and was completed in December, 1999.


When the Faculty of Medicine Scrapbook arrived at the Founders’ Archive, there was some degree of order present. Although photographs were not identified and were found between pages of the book, newspaper articles were clearly labelled with the names and dates of the papers they appeared in. The articles were added to the scrapbook in chronological order and are arranged as such. In addition, the aesthetic value of the scrapbook itself was retained as much as possible by arranging the articles based on the page from which they came.
