Name of creator
Alexander MacDonald was born on October 29, 1863, in Mongenais, Québec. His interest in medicine developed during a recovery from tetanus. He graduated from McGill with a degree in Medicine in 1889. He practiced all his life in Vankleek Hill, Ontario, where he purchased a building and turned it into a hospital. He also donated his time as a physician to nuns and clerics at a local convent. He died on March 1, 1952.
The fonds was donated to the Osler Library by Alexander MacDonald’s granddaughter, Mrs. Barbara McPhee, in 2010.
