During the early 1940s, the JGH Auxiliary’s Honourary Patroness was Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, who was the wife of Canada’s Governor-General, the Earl of Athlone.
When the JGH opened in 1934, it had two crucial, ongoing needs: a steady source of funding to purchase medical equipment and supplies, and a pool of dedicated volunteers. Both were delivered by the JGH Auxiliary.

Deepest sympathies are extended to the family and friends of Dr. Victor Goldbloom, O.C., O.Q., who died on February 15 at the age of 92.
