Custodial history

Fonds was donated to the Archives by Dr. E.J. Rosen by way of contact with one of the Archives’ co-founders, Dr. Cyril Greenland, in November 1992.

Scope and content

Fonds consists largely of copies of publications, articles, and studies – many of which are authored or co-authored by Dr. E.J. Rosen – that primarily concern various issues pertaining to child psychiatry including child abuse, the education of emotionally disturbed children, and mental retardation. However, fonds also includes copies of publications and articles that pertain to other psychiatry-related topics including the relationship of biology to mental health, nutrition, depression, and violence portrayed in the media. Fonds also includes: some correspondence that largely relates to Dr. Rosen’s professional activities including his participation in studies, attendance at meetings of organizations regarding child abuse, and his receipt of publications or copies of studies; some financial records particularly pertaining to Dr. Rosen’s investments, income tax, insurance, and submissions to the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) as a physician; some material (predominantly form letters and meeting announcements) pertaining to Dr. Rosen’s involvement in various professional associations such as the Ontario Medical Association; teaching records predominantly relating to Dr. Rosen’s work at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education but also in relation to lectures he gave for classes in the University of Toronto’s Department of Psychiatry; and materials such as meeting minutes, proposals, and reports that are related to Dr. Rosen’s consultancy work at various organizations including the Etobicoke Board of Education, the Children’s Aid Society of Metropolitan Toronto, the T.R.E.A.T. (Treatment Resource for Emotionally and/or Abused Toddlers) Program, the West End Creche Child and Family Clinic, Blue Hills Treatment Centre for Pre-School Children, and various Vancouver-based organizations. The fonds also contains a copy of a transcript of a panel discussion that documents reminiscences of former employees of the Toronto Psychiatric Hospital including Dr. Rosen. Fonds is comprised of the following series: Correspondence and memorandum Financial records Professional associations and committees Teaching records Consultancy work Publications, articles, studies and related material
