Administrative history

The Vitcoria General Hospital were in the decision of the City of Halifax to build a hospital that was completed in 1859. Various problems delayed the delivery of health care and it wasn't until April of 1867 when the first patient was received in the restructured Provincial and City Hospital - a jointg body of the two levels of government. In 1887 the Province assumed total responsiblity for the Hospital which was also renamed, in the year of Royal Jubilee, as the Victoira General Hospital. Consolidation of most Halifax hospitals under one administration happened in 1994 and the Victoria General Hospital became a site under the Queen Elizabeth II Health Science Centre.

Custodial history

Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives by A.V. Earle, son of Richard William Lawrence Earle, in accession (12-91) in 1991, along with eight photographs that appear to have been transferred to PC1 and added to the Kellogg Library Photograph Collection.
