Name of creator
Phillip Weatherbe was a professor of surgery at Dalhousie Medical School from 1912-1949. He was born in 1875, a son of Sir Robert Weatherbe, Chief Justice of Nova Scotia, and Lady Weatherbe. After receiving his high school education at Horton Academy, Pictou County, he studied medicine at Edinburgh University, graduating in 1901. He spent a year in post-graduate studies in London and Berlin before practising general medicine in England and Scotland for another year. In 1907 he returned to Halifax and in 1910 was appointed as a staff surgeon at the Halifax Children's Hospital, a position he retained until his death. He served in both the Boer War and World War One, where he was a major in the Canadian Army Medical Corps serving at the Cogswell and Rockhead Military hospitals. He died in 1950.
Records were accessioned by the Dalhousie University Archives in 1984. Custodial history is unknown.
