The fonds consists of slides of images of activities at the Camsell Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta. Jack Wooders created the slides at the behest of Dr. Harold Pfeiffer, a doctor at the Camsell Hospital. Pfeiffer was a sculptor and taught some patients (largely Inuit) at the Camsell in arts and crafts, both as a social activity and for the patients to earn some money while at the hospital.
The slides show portraits of patients with and without their carvings and sculptures, art collections and pieces, Dr. Pfeiffer at his desk and work, and several pictures of paintings.
There are two copies of 17 of the slides, with a copy each in two different tints (red and blue). There are also two blue-tinted photos of the inside of a sculpture and of a third painting. The slides also have different details that are highlighted based on the tint.
The first box, with blue-tinted slides, was labeled “C. Campsell [sic] Hosp. with Harold Pfeiffer on Sunday March 25/3/56, Palm Sun.” The blue slides are on Pix-A-Color slides. The second box that these slides were donated in, with red-tinted slides, was labeled as “C. Campsell [sic] Hospital Continued 1956.” These slides are on Ansco Color slides. The photos were taken using a Leica III Pentax camera.
