Biographical history

Dr. Gosse was born in Newfoundland in 1912 and moved to Nova Scotia ten years later. He graduated from Dalhousie Medical School in 1939. Active and well respected, he was Class President for four years and founded the Dalhousie Medical Journal. He pursued post-graduate training in Urology in Cleveland.

After joining the Canadian Army, he travelled to Normandy and was a member of one of the first surgical teams on D-Day. He continued to serve overseas in the Canadian Army Medical Corps for three more years.

After returning to Halifax, Dr. Gosse worked as a Professor of Urology at Dalhousie and Chair of the Department of Urology at the Victoria General and Camp Hill hospitals.

He was an active member in several professional associations and community organizations. Dr. Gosse was appointed Lieutenant Governor in 1973 in the province of Nova Scotia, a post he held for five years. He passed away on December 21, 1996.
