Name of creator
The photograph was in the possession of Dr. Ian Rusted and was transferred to the Faculty of Medicine Founders’ Archive in February 2000 as part of the Dr. Ian Rusted fonds.
The papers of Dr. Whelan, president of NMA were donated to the archive by his wife in June 2010.
Scope and content
The photograph contains names of 46 delegates who attended the 1926 Annual Meeting of the Newfoundland Medical Association.
Dr. Whelan’s papers cover the time he was president of the NMA (1968-1969) and consist of minutes of the various committees of the NMA, correspondence, annual reports and proceedings of an open meeting of a planning conference for the Health Sciences Centre (1966). Pertinent issues in Dr. Whelan’s time as NMA president include: planning for the medical school, introduction of Medicare (MCP), and inefficiencies in outpatient care.
