(1864 - [19--])
Frederick Warren Cox was a physician who received the first two years of his training at Halifax Medical College. He was born on 8 July 1864 in Upper Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, to Francis Cox and Catherine Creelman. After attending Halifax Medical College he completed his medical education at Bellevue Hospital, New York, the first public hospital in the United States. He practised medicine in Ellis, Kansas; Salt Lake City, Utah; Heron Lake, Minnesota; and Vermillion, South Dakota, where he served as mayor from 1898 -1900. Shortly after the outbreak of the Spanish American War, Dr. Cox was appointed assistant surgeon to the South Dakota Volunteers and served with his regiment in the Philippines. He was an occasional contributor to some of the best medical journals in the West.
Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives by Rev. Edward P. Thompson on February 16, 2006. Further custodial history is unknown.
