Name of creator
The student photographs are disseminated to faculty and staff within the Faculty of Medicine at Memorial at the start of the academic year (September). The photographs in this fonds are sent to the Circulation Desk of the Health Sciences Library for the use of circulation staff, librarians and other library personnel. The 1973 photograph was removed from COLL-006 Dr. A.R. Cox in 2012 and added to this collection.
Scope and content
As the Faculty of Medicine begins a new academic year of instruction, it is compulsory that photographs be taken of each class of students. The First year medical students, Second Years, Third Years, Fourth Years, and Interns and Residents have their photographs taken. The effort is organized by the Office of Student Affairs and the pictures are disseminated for the benefit of the Faculty, staff and administration of the Medical School. It not only allows for the identification of students according to their current year of study in the Medical Sciences but also provides a record of past graduating classes and numbers of physicians who have enrolled in and graduated from the Medical School at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
Fonds contains photographs of Medical students from years 1973-1999 and a small number of photographs of Nursing Students covering the years 1981-1982. Fonds is composed of the following series, each corresponding with the date of the class of students:
1.0 Medical Students, 1974-1999
2.0 Nursing Students, 1981-1982
3.0 Medical Students, 1973
Immediate source of acquisition
Fonds was obtained from the Circulation Staff at the Health Sciences Library in April 2000.
When the Faculty of Medicine Student Photographs arrived at the Founders’ Archive, there was some degree of order present. Files containing photographs were clearly labelled with the years the photographs were taken. This formed the framework for the arrangement and description of the collection and the creation of a finding aid (item level).
