Name of creator
Daniel MacInnis was a 1918 graduate of Dalhousie Medical School. He was born in Middle River, Nova Scotia, in 1889. He moved to Saskatchewan to teach school, but returned to Nova Scotia to attend medical school. On staff as Senior Houseman at the Victoria General Hospital in 1917, he helped many victims of the Halifax Explosion. Two years later he joined the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps and served overseas. After the war, he settled in Shubenacadie and opened a medical practice, which he maintained until his retirement in 1963. He was also on staff at the Colchester County Hospital. Dr. MacInnis was a senior member of the Canadian Medical Association and honorary president of the Dalhousie Medical Alumni Association. He died in May 1973.
Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives in accession (19-84) by Dr. D. Ross MacInnis, son of Dr. Daniel F. MacInnis, in 1984.
