Taking Toronto's Healthcare History

Taking Toronto's Healthcare History

The history of healthcare in Toronto covers an array of professions and subjects. It is preserved in a vast number of objects and documents. This exhibit offers a glimpse into Toronto’s medical past and presents a sample of objects from across the medical spectrum from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

These items have been contributed by several university collections: the Fisher Rare Book Library, the University of Toronto Scientific Instrument Collection, and the collection of the Medical Alumni Association.
