Name of creator
Kenneth Alexander MacKenzie was a 1903 graduate of Dalhousie Medical School and Professor of Medicine from 1926-1945. He was born in Pictou, Nova Scotia, in 1880 and received his early education in Pictou and Springhill before going to Dalhousie. After graduation he practiced briefly in Cape Breton and then took up post-graduate studies in internal medicine in England. During World War One he left his studies to serve with the Dalhousie No. 7 Stationary Unit. After the war he retuned to England before moving back to Halifax. In 1926 Dr. MacKenzie was appointed Professor of Medicine at Dalhousie, a post he held until 1945. He was an active member in several professional associations, including president of the Medical Society of Nova Scotia from 1932-1933. In 1950 he received an Honorary Doctor of Laws from Dalhousie University. He died on 12 May 1958.
Records were accessioned by the Dalhousie University Archives in 1984. Custodial history is unknown.
