Biographical history

George Arthur MacIntosh was a 1905 graduate of Dalhousie Medical School. He was born in 1878 in Argyle, Nova Scotia, and educated at Pictou Academy before entering Dalhousie Medical School in 1901. After graduation he worked at the Nova Scotia Hospital for four years, working under Dr. W.H. Hattie and completing the first study of Huntington's Chorea made in Nova Scotia. He spent a year at Saint Bartholomew's Hospital, London, and six months at the Rotunda Hospital in Dublin before setting up a general practice back in Halifax. After suffering a serious infection, resulting in the amputation of an arm, Dr. MacIntosh began work at the Victoria General Hospital, with a brief interruption from 1928-1930 when he served as Chief Medical Officer for the province. In 1930 he returned to the Victoria General as superintendent, a position he retained until his death in 1945.

Custodial history

Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives by Dr. O.C. MacIntosh, nephew of Dr. G.A. MacIntosh, and accessioned in 1984.
