In 1957, a committee composed of faculty members of the University of British Columbia, headed by James M. Mather, investigated the Hoxsey Cancer Clinic in Dallas, Texas. This investigation was undertaken at the request of the Minister of Education and the Minister of Health and Welfare of the Government of British Columbia, and was financed by them. The committee examined various aspects of the Hoxsey Cancer Clinic, including patient treatments, facilities, and procedures.
Collection was transferred to Rare Books and Special Collections from Woodward Memorial Library in 2013.
