Special Collections: Mainland Auxiliary of the Atlantic City Medical Center Records

Mainland Auxiliary of the Atlantic City Medical Center Records

About the Collection

The Mainland Auxiliary of the Atlantic City Medical Center started in 1974 as the Mainland branch of the hospital opened in Pomona, New Jersey. It was originally called the Atlantic City Hospital Guild and later the Mainland Auxiliary. The organization held various events such as luncheon meetings, a March cherry blossom annual ball, cocktail parties, holiday parties, book sales, uniform sales, dusty trail rides, themed parties, and fashion shows. The Auxiliary also manages the PIne Cone Gift Shop. These activities have assisted in raising nearly $3 million for the hospital (as of 2023), including money that has gone towards hospital upgrades, medical equipment and supplies, clothing, continuing education for staff members, and amenities. 

This collection contains scrapbooks of newspaper clippings, photos, and invitations to special events. The scrapbooks date from 1973 (with an invitation to an inaugural meeting) to the 2010s. Some of the books also include correspondence between members and from the president to various organizations. 

Digital files on eight DVD discs include photographs of events, video slideshows for the 35th and 40th anniversaries in 2009 and 2014 respectively, and presentation slides for the “Legacy of Giving” event.

It is also of note that the collection includes 3 baby bibs and 2 shirts for the organization. 

Collection processed by Tyneka Boggs, March 2022, and Franchesca Witzak, January 2023, Special Collections interns.
