A letter from George Leverton to Summers Corners Public School, relating to the history of the Elgin County Crest, December 17, 1991. He basically states that he was not able to find very much information on the history of the crest, except that the fur of the beaver was important in the development of the country, and the reasons for needing to develop a crest.

History / Biographical
The RTO/ERO was initially established in 1968 under the name Superannuated Teachers of Ontario (STO/ERO).
At a 1971 gathering of superannuated teachers held at Parkside Collegiate in St. Thomas, the Elgin County branch of Superannuated Teachers of Ontario was formed with 40 charter members.
The purpose of the organization was “to preserve the identity of retired teachers and to act as a source of reference and assistance to the teaching professional and governmental bodies.”
In 1990, the RTO expanded to 41 Districts, with Elgin County being designated the final spot.

History / Biographical
The St. Thomas-Elgin Camera Club was formed on November 22, 1954 with twelve members. The club was organized by Reverend A.H. Johnson, Minister of Grace United Church, St. Thomas, and originally met at Grace United Church and functioned as a club for church parishioners. The club’s charter administrators and general members included Rev. Johnston, President; Mr. Lewis Heard, Vice President; Mrs. B. Bissett, Secretary; Mr. G. Harris, Treasurer; and general members Densmore Hanes, Norma Kennedy, Mel Kennedy, Herb Goldsmith, Edna Wightman, Gery Gordon, Mrs. J. Magnusson, Mr. Hellyer and Mr. McDougall. The club soon attracted members other than Grace Church parishioners and began meeting in a succession of other venues in St. Thomas. The club’s purpose was to promote interest in photography. Members met to share their knowledge and experience and to receive guidance and photographic education. The club participated in various events, such as yearly field trips, rally and salon competitions and lectures by guest speakers. In 1956 The St. Thomas-Elgin Camera Club became a member of the Western Ontario Federation of Camera Clubs (established in March 1955), joining member clubs from London, Windsor, Chatham and Sarnia (with two chapters). Subsequently, clubs from Ingersoll, Ridgetown, Brantford, Milverton, Simcoe, Stratford and Wallaceburg joined the Federation. The Federation’s constitution ensured that no one club would dominate by stipulating that each member club supply an executive for one year on a rotating basis. Federation events were organized and its records created and maintained by the executive of the given year. The Federation sponsored many inter-club activities including an annual photographic salon/exhibition, rally days, seminars and slide exchanges. The Western Ontario Federation of Camera Clubs disbanded in 2001. The St. Thomas-Elgin Camera Club supplied the Federation’s executive during its final year and consequently assumed custody of the Federation’s records. The St. Thomas-Elgin Camera Club ceased operation in June 2005 in its 50th anniversary year.
Custodial History
The records comprising the fonds were donated to the Elgin County Archives in September 2005 by former St. Thomas-Elgin Camera Club member Ann E. Beckett, who had held the records since the club ceased operating in June 2005.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of records created and maintained by the St. Thomas-Elgin Camera Club, including photographs, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, correspondence, meeting minutes and agendas, financial and insurance records, membership lists, slide exchange program records, club objectives and programs, as well as miscellaneous club-related records. Fonds also includes records of the Western Ontario Federation of Camera Clubs, created in part by the St. Thomas-Elgin Camera Club in the course of acting as periodic Federation administrators and maintained by the Club as permanent record custodians following the Federation’s disbandment. Fonds is arranged into the following series: 1. Minutes 2. Events 3. Slide Exchanges 4. Financial Records 5. Membership 6. Photographs 7. Administrative Records 8. Newspaper Clippings 9.

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.
