Part of Dr. Thomas G. Caunt fonds
The file contains a scrapbook created by Caunt for his son detailing significant moments of his medical career, during 1943–1968. Photographs and newspaper clippings document the 1943 School of Psychiatric Nursing graduation; various events at Essondale Hospital including the installation of the Hospital's first television, the certification of Crease clinic by the American Psychiatric Association, occupational therapy displays, the installation of a new BC Tel telephone exchange, Christmas parties, retirements, events at Pennington Hall, and the opening of the Industrial Therapy Building. It also documents an event Caunt attended at the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City held by the Canadian Psychiatric Association.
A significant portion of the scrapbook documents the trips Caunt took in 1949-1950 to move geriatric patients to the new Homes for the Aged in Vernon (Dellview) and Terrace (Skeenaview). The scrapbook features photographs of settlements, including Terrace, McBride, Ocean Falls, Powell River, and geographic features including Lakelse Lake and hot springs, Gold Creek, the Inside Passage and Stanley Park.
