General note

Between 1953 and 1985, the executive offices used a numerical file classification scheme that was referred to as the 'central registry file.' This record-keeping system went through a period of transition between 1986 and 1987 as it made the shift from a numerical to an alphabetical file classification scheme. The records from 1987 onward follow the existing filing system in which records are classified further according to these categories: General, Associations, Committees, and Departments. Within these categories, files are subdivided alphabetically.

General note

The fonds is stored at Kingston General Hospital Archives, which is physically located at Queen's University Archives.
