Name of creator
Eva Mader MacDonald was a 1927 graduate of Dalhousie Medical School. She was born in Halifax in 1902. After medical school she worked for one year at the Nova Scotia Sanatorium, before moving to the Toronto Women's College Hospital in 1929, also working as a professor in hygiene for the University of Toronto until 1933. She held multiple positions at the Women's College Hospital, including lab director (1947-1952) and health director (1952-1956). From 1952-1962 she ran a private practice, and in 1963 she created the initiative "Operation Recall" to encourage former women doctors to return to their careers. Dr. Macdonald was appointed Chancellor of the University of Toronto from 1974-1978. Dalhousie University named her Alumnus of the Year in 1974 and granted her an Honorary Doctor of Laws. She died in April 1997.
Records were accessioned by the Dalhousie University Archives in 1984. Custodial history is unknown.
