Name of creator
Daniel McNeil Parker was a physician and politician in Dartmouth and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Born in Windsor, Nova Scotia, in 1822, he received his early education in Windsor and at Horton Academy. He studied medicine and graduated from the University of Edinburgh with his MD and LRCS from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. He returned to Nova Scotia in the late 1930s and established a family medical practice, which he maintained until the 1890s. Dr. Parker was president of both the Provincial Medical Association of Nova Scotia and the Canadian Medical Association. He was also an active member of the Liberal-Conservative Party; in 1867 he was elected to the Legislative Council, resigning in 1902. He died on 4 November 1907.
Records were accessioned by the Dalhousie University Archives in 1984. Custodial history is unknown.
