Biographical history

Nelson Pratt was a graduate of Dalhousie Medical School and a physician in Stewiacke, Nova Scotia. He was born in Selma, Hants County, where he received his early education. After teaching for several years he entered Dalhousie Medical School and received his MD in 1900. Ill health led him to live in Montana for some years before returning to his practice in Stewiacke, where he built a house and acquired a farm to raise horses. He died on 6 December 1952.
