Biographical history

Dr. Pothier was born in Yarmouth County in 1891 and received his early education at the local school in Eel Brook. He attended St. Anne's College in Digby County and graduated from Dalhousie Medical School in 1919.

During the First World War, Dr. Pothier served as a medical surgeon in the Army Medical Corps. After the war, he continued with post-graduate studies at St. Vincent Hospital in New York City and returned to Weymouth, Nova Scotia in 1920 to set up a medical practice.

Dr. Pothier 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 passed away in 1976.
