Biographical history

John Alexander Webster was a medical doctor who practiced in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. The Webster family has practiced medicine in Nova Scotia since 1791, when Dr. Isaac Webster moved from Manfield, Connecticut to Cornwallis, Nova Scotia to practice medicine. His son Frederick Augustis Webster attended Edinburgh University and set up practice in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in 1833.

John Alexander Webster graduated from Dalhousie Medical School in 1938 and, in 1954, established his medical practice in the Guest-Lovitt House on Parade Street in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and stayed there until his retirement in 1992. His youngest son, David McGowen Webster was born in 1958 and graduated from Dalhousie University in 1990. He is still practicing in the basement of the Guest-Lovitt House today.
