History / Biographical
The history of the St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital began with the establishment in 1891 of its first predecessor institution, the Amasa Wood Hospital, named for its founder, the Elgin County philanthropist Amasa Wood. The Amasa Wood Hospital School of Nursing was established in 1892.
When the City of St. Thomas required expanded hospital services following the First World War, the new Memorial Hospital was built in 1923-1924. Nursing education in the city continued under the auspices of the new hospital, under the name Memorial Hospital Training School for Nurses.
A further expansion of hospital services was required following the Second World War and, consequently, the St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital was constructed, and opened on May 11, 1954. That same year the St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital School of Nursing accepted its first students. Memorial Hospital continued to operate, as a chronic care unit of the new hospital. Beginning in the late 1950s, the hospital's School of Nursing facilities were modernized and expanded and re-opened in August, 1959 as the Dr. J.W. Snell School of Nursing.
In 1961, St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital established a 10 year plan for enlarging and updating its facilities. Construction began in 1964. By 1966 a new paediatric wing, emergency department, radiology, physiotherapy and male surgery wing were added giving a total of 301 beds in the active unit, and in 1970 the hospital's Cardiac Unit opened.
In 1974, the Province of Ontario transferred responsibility for nursing education from hospitals to community colleges. Beginning in 1975, the former St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital School of Nursing began operating as the St. Thomas campus of London, Ontario-based Fanshawe College.
The 1980s brought development of an ICU/CCU progressive care area with a bed capacity of thirteen, and the operating rooms were renovated, bringing the total of operating rooms to six, plus one recovery room.
Major construction again took place in 1990, providing new space for Materiels Management (including Central Stores and Central Supply), Rehabilitation Services and Long Term Care beds in the Continuing Care Centre (CCC). Patients were transferred to the new CCC from the old Memorial Hospital, which was then closed. Improvements in services continued through the 1990s, with advances in information technology and the addition of a CT Scanner, Bone Mineral Densitometer, Sleep Lab, and Mammography Suit.
The St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital Archives was founded in 2000, with the assistance of hospital staff and volunteers including Donna Bethune, Mary Jane Doan, Susan Gordon, Steve Peters, Chris Stinson and Sue Wadley. The Archives was disbanded and its collection donated to the Elgin County Archives and Elgin County Museum in June, 2008.

History / Biographical
Born in Southwold Township in 1850, Neil R. Darrach later moved to St. Thomas during the railway boom and began a career as a noted architect. He opened his office in St. Thomas in 1879, and a few months later was awarded his first contract to design the Centre Street Baptist Church. Over 24 buildings in St. Thomas are recognized as Darrach designs; of note, this includes the First United Church, the Grand Central Hotel, Memorial Hospital, St. Thomas Masonic Hall, Myrtle Street Public School, Balaclava Street Public School and the Mickleborough block in downtown St. Thomas. He desinged several prominent homes in the community including the former Anderson family home on Rosebery Place and the former Gilbert family home on Margarget Street. He was also commissioned to reconstruct the Elgin County Courthouse, after the original building was gutted by fire in 1898. Many of Darrach's buildings now have historical designation including Wellington Street Public school, St. Thomas City hall, Old St. Thomas Public Library, Princess Avenue play house (originally a church), and the former Southern Loan building. From 1911-1917, Darrach moved to Regina, Saskatchewan where he designed a number of notable historic buildings. In 1917, Darrach returned to St. Thomas where he re-entered into partnership with architect John T. Findlay, who was Darrach's associate before he moved to Regina. He remained in St. Thomas until his death in 1926.
Scope and Content
Series contains material related to architect Neil R. Darrach, collected and maintained by historian Paul Baldwin. Includes original and photocopied newspaper articles, reference material, correspondence, and handwritten and typed notes pertaining to Darrach's personal and professional lives. Also includes photographic slides and prints of buildings designed by Darrach in St. Thomas and area, as well as in Regina.

History / Biographical
John T. Findlay was born in Scotland in 1844 and was a prominent architect in Iverness from 1901-1905. He emigrated to Canada in 1907 and settled in St. Thomas, Ontario, where he became a draftsman for Neil R. Darrach. He worked briefly for John L. Thomas, an architect in London, Ontario who had opened a branch office in St. Thomas. In late 1909, Findlay moved to Toronto and spent two years in the office of Ellis & Connery before returning to St. Thomas in 1911 to open an idependent architectural office under his own name. Findlay maintained his practise until 1917. Around this time, he rejoined Neil R. Darrach, who had returned to St. Thomas after working in Regina, Saskatchewan for a brief period. Together they formed a new partnership, Darrach & Findlay, and collaborated until Darrach retired in 1925. Findlay continued to operate his own office until 1947. During the Second World War, Findlay temporarily moved to Ottawa to assist the federal government with designs for wartime structures. He died in St. Thomas on December 20, 1947, and his office was subsequently acquired by George Morley. Some of Findlay's notable designs in St. Thomas and Elgin County include Scott Street Public School, Aldborough School Section No. 11 building, the Talbot Street YMCA building, the Curtis Street YWCA building, Memorial Hospital, Grace United Church, West Lorne town hall and the Port Stanley Public Library, among others. Information paraphrased from John T. Findlay's entry in Biographic Dictionary of Architects in Canada.
Scope and Content
Series contains research material collected by historian Paul Baldwin about St. Thomas architect John T. Findlay. Includes photocopied and original newspaper clippings, reference material, correspondence and handwritten notes. Also includes a project journal maintained by Findlay and Neil R. Darrach, 1900-1915.

History / Biographical
Born in Southwold Township in 1850, Neil R. Darrach later moved to St. Thomas during the railway boom and began a career as a noted architect. He opened his office in St. Thomas in 1879, and a few months later was awarded his first contract to design the Centre Street Baptist Church. Over 24 buildings in St. Thomas are recognized as Darrach designs; of note, this includes the First United Church, the Grand Central Hotel, Memorial Hospital, St. Thomas Masonic Hall, Myrtle Street Public School, Balaclava Street Public School and the Mickleborough block in downtown St. Thomas. He desinged several prominent homes in the community including the former Anderson family home on Rosebery Place and the former Gilbert family home on Margarget Street. He was also commissioned to reconstruct the Elgin County Courthouse, after the original building was gutted by fire in 1898. Many of Darrach's buildings now have historical designation including Wellington Street Public school, St. Thomas City hall, Old St. Thomas Public Library, Princess Avenue play house (originally a church), and the former Southern Loan building. From 1911-1917, Darrach moved to Regina, Saskatchewan where he designed a number of notable historic buildings. In 1917, Darrach returned to St. Thomas where he re-entered into partnership with architect John T. Findlay, who was Darrach's associate before he moved to Regina. He remained in St. Thomas until his death in 1926.
