Name of creator
Hector Pothier was a physician and politician born in Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia, in 1891. He received his early education at the local school in Eel Brook before studying at St. Anne's College in Digby County and graduating from Dalhousie Medical School in 1919. During World War One, Dr. Pothier served as a medical surgeon in the Army Medical Corps, then took post-graduate studies at St. Vincent Hospital in New York City, returning to Weymouth, Nova Scotia, in 1920 to set up a medical practice. He was affiliated with several community organizations and was elected MLA for the municipality of Clare in 1963. He served for four years, during which time he retired his medical practice and settled in Beaver River. He died in 1976.
Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives by Evangeline Pothier, wife of Dr. H. Pothier, in accession (1988-018) in 1998.
Scope and content
