85th Anniversary - ArchivesOctober 2019

From the archives: Visit from a princess

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. In 1945, the Princess (centre) visited with Annie Goldbloom (left), the Auxiliary’s founding President, and Lucy Bronfman, a founding Auxiliary member and wife of the JGH’s first President, Allan Bronfman.


The Jewish General Hospital’s 85th anniversary is an ideal occasion to take a glimpse into the past. By remembering the extraordinary efforts of the hospital’s founders, supporters, staff and volunteers, we honour the enduring legacy of the JGH.
