Administrative history

The Dalhousie University No. 7 "Overseas" Stationary Hospital was established in response to the need for qualified medical personnel to serve in the First World War.

It was first mobilized on November 9, 1915 at Dalhousie Medical College in Halifax with 162 on staff. The staff included a wide variety of health professionals including doctors, dentists, nurses and other administrative personnel. The majority of these were Dalhousie students or professors.

The entourage sailed from St. John, New Brunswick on December 13, 1915 and was stationed first in England and later in France.

Custodial history

The records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives in three accessions, the years being 1977, 1987, and 2012. Prior to that, the records of the 1977 accession were in the custody of Col. Samuel R. Balcom and T.H. Dickson and the records of the 2012 accession were in the custody of Leslie Pezzack. The custodial history for the 1987 accession is unknown.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of a booklet on the history of the Stationary Hospital, the correspondence of nursing matron Laura Hubley, a book of signatures belonging to members of the unit, a small album containing postcards from Sgt. A. Fraser Tupper (who worked with the Dalhousie Unit in 1916 and 1917), and correspondence and photos from Sgt. Tupper to Ralph Kane.
