Overview

Excerpt from A History of the Toronto General Hospital: Including an Account of the Medal of the Loyal and Patriotic Society of 1812

The compilation of this brief history of the Toronto General Hospital has been a grateful task, although for many reasons a difficult one. The Hospital records, if there were any, have disappeared, the newspapers of long ago were not as devoted to the tittle-tattle of every-day life as those of the present time, and so few people living can throw much light on the questions under consideration. Unfortunately no hospital Pepys existed.

Then again the material for publication has been collected at odd moments snatched from the hurly-burly of the strenuous life the writer has had to live, owing to affairs of both the Gerrard Street and College Street Hospitals requiring so much of his attention. At the same time the matters discussed must prove of interest to all persons who wish to know as much as possible of Canadian history.

It may be urged that the book refers to conditions and generalities, rather than to persons, but this was inevitable. For example, if it had been an attempt to tell the story of the medical profession and its doings in the Hospital, another large volume would have been required, as the majority of men eminent as physicians and surgeons in Toronto were at some time or another on its staff.
