Name of creator
John Alexander Webster was a Dalhousie Medical School graduate and general surgeon in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. He was born in Yarmouth in 1914 and earned his BSc at Dalhousie in 1936 and his MD,CM in 1938. After residency in Cleveland, IL, he served as a surgeon with the Royal Canadian Airforce from 1942-1945. He obtained his FRCS(C) in 1946 and his FACS in 1947. In 1950 he returned to Yarmouth as a general surgeon—the fourth generation of his family to practise surgery in Yarmouth, and the fifth generation in Nova Scotia. He retired in 1992, when his youngest son, David McGowen Webster, took over his Yarmouth practice.
Records was accessioned by the Dalhousie University Archives in 1984. Custodial history is unknown.
