Name of creator
The first predecessor organization of the Defence Medical Association of Canada was the Association of Military Surgeons of Canada, founded in 1892. Its early history is obscure but, in 1907, it became the Association of Medical Officers of the Militia of Canada and then in 1936, the Defence Medical Association of Canada. The purpose of the Association was to keep the members of the medical branches of the Armed Services in close contact with the rest of the medical profession in Canada. The membership included active, reserve and retired members of the Medical Services.
The Association encouraged the formation of provincial branches, which were subordinate to the national body and interested in local questions. There was a branch in New Brunswick from 1949 to 1957 and probably both before and after these dates. The branch was closely associated with the New Brunswick Medical Society and on occasion met at their annual conventions.
Information about the custody of these records prior to acquisition is incomplete.
