Name of creator
George Kerr Thomson helped to establish the Maritime Dental College and was Dean of Dalhousie's Faculty of Dentistry in 1924. He was born in Newcastle, New Brunswick, on 26 March 1870. After moving to Annapolis, Nova Scotia, where he wrote the pharmacy examination, he attended Philadelphia Dental College, returning to Annapolis in 1892 to set up a practice. In 1897 he relocated to Halifax, where he taught dentistry from 1908 and maintained a private dental practice until 1935. Dr. Thomson was president of the Nova Scotia Dental Society (1897-1898), served in the Canadian Army Dental Corps (1915-1918), was chairman of the Oral Hygiene Education Committee (1921-1926), and was elected Nova Scotia representative for the Dominion Dental Council (1922-1935). He was also a fellow of the American College of Dentists (1925) and president of the Canadian Dental Association (1925-1926). He died in 1935.
Records were accessioned by Dalhousie University Archives in 1978. Custodial history is unknown.
