Name of creator
Jordan W. Smith was a physician in Liverpool, Nova Scotia. He was born in Selma, Nova Scotia, in 1864 and educated in small country schools. He taught school for a few years in order to save money to study medicine at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore. Later, while working as a resident in a Baltimore hospital, he took a post-graduate course from Sir William Osler. He returned to Nova Scotia in 1895 and practised medicine in a small fishing village before opening an office in the town of Liverpool. For the next half century he worked as a country doctor, travelling by horse and buggy, automobile and boat, and delivering over 3000 babies across Queen's County. He also served for 14 years as a member of the provincial legislature, and later on the board of the Nova Scotia Power Commission. He died in 1948.
Records were accessioned by Dalhousie University Archives in 1984, donated by Dr. John Wickwire and formerly owned by Dr. William Murray.
