Biographical history

Samuel William Williamson was a physician and 1896 graduate of Dalhousie Medical School. Born in Loganville, Nova Scotia, on 13 January 1869 to Hugh Williamson and Jessie Ross, he was educated as a teacher before studying medicine. After spending one year as a resident at the Victoria General Hospital and two years in practice in Hebron, Yarmouth County, in 1899 he opened a general practice in Yarmouth. During World War One he worked as a medical examiner for both the Yarmouth recruiting centre and the artillery training centre. Dr. Williamson was a key figure in the founding of Yarmouth's first hospital and later served as its chief of medical staff. He was president of the Western Counties Medical Society and the medical officer for Western Nova Scotia. In 1960 he was made honorary president of the Dalhousie Medical Alumni Association. He died in 1967.
