Name of creator
Ernest Ireson Glenister was born in Halifax in 1901. He graduated with a BA from Saint Mary's College in 1920 followed by an MD from Dalhousie Medical School in 1925. He entered a general practice with Dr. Peter Hebb in Dartmouth before establishing his own general practice in 1920, where he remained until 1943, when he moved to Toronto to pursue post-graduate studies. He studied ophthalmology and received his FRCS in 1945. Returning to Halifax, Dr. Glenister set up a specialist practice, retiring in 1974. He also worked at the Glaucoma Clinic in the Victoria General Hospital from 1962-1974. He was an active member in many professional associations, and was the first secretary of the Nova Scotia Society of Ophthalmologists. He died on 27 November 1987.
