John A. Bell was a physician born in 1876 in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, the son of Senator A.C. Bell and Anne Henderson Bell. From 1892-1994 he studied arts at Dalhousie University and then switched to medicine at McGill, graduating with an MD in 1898. He pursued post-graduate studies in London, England, and returned to New Glasgow to set up his practice. In 1919 he undertook ear, nose and throat specialist medical studies at the Post Graduate Hospital in New York. Dr. Bell was secretary of the Pictou County Medical Society for nearly forty years, sat on the executive of the Medical Society of Nova Scotia, served on the New Glasgow Town Council and also in the Legislative Council of Nova Scotia. He was married to Elizabeth M. Kopf, with whom he had four children. He died on 27 May 1941 following an operation at Victoria General Hospital.
