Dates of existence



Jordan W. Smith was a physician in Liverpool, Nova Scotia. He was born in Selma, Nova Scotia, in 1864 and educated in small country schools. He taught school for a few years in order to save money to study medicine at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore. Later, while working as a resident in a Baltimore hospital, he took a post-graduate course from Sir William Osler. He returned to Nova Scotia in 1895 and practised medicine in a small fishing village before opening an office in the town of Liverpool. For the next half century he worked as a country doctor, travelling by horse and buggy, automobile and boat, and delivering over 3000 babies across Queen's County. He also served for 14 years as a member of the provincial legislature, and later on the board of the Nova Scotia Power Commission. He died in 1948.
