Fonds consists of records created and acquired by Dr. Abraham Groves relating to his medical practice. There are also records included in the fonds that have been assembled by the donor.
The records include maps, certificates and diplomas, a notebook, a tribute poster, as well as hand-written pages of notes and correspondence pertaining to Dr. Groves' life and medical practice. The maps depict the prevalence of disease on a weekly basis annotated on the back presumably by Dr. Groves. The certificates and diplomas confirm his graduation from the University of Toronto and practicing licences from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, Alberta and related courses in the North West Territories, Missouri and Michigan. The notebook reflects the period of his life in school, while the tribute poster highlights his career as a physician and surgeon, noting his achievement of 'firsts' in Ontario.
Also included are handwritten notes describing anecdotal events from his life, possibly written by Ethel Burke Groves, his second wife, and his sister, Catharine Bright. There is also correspondence sent to Dr. Groves from Dr. H. O. Walker writing from Detroit, Michigan.
