Name of creator
Dr. Archibald Daniel Campbell, or "A.D.", as he was called, was born on a Mosa, Middlesex County farm on November 12, 1886, and there he spent all his early life. After attending a rural public school and Glencoe High School he went on to study medicine at McGill University. He graduated in 1911. After 2 years of interning at the Royal Victoria Hospital he went west to Alberta to practice. As World War I began, he returned east to join the Canadian Medical Service and served overseas until the end of the war. On returning home he set up a practice in Montreal and went on to become an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at McGill University and Gynecologist and Obstetrician-in-Chief at the Montreal General Hospital. He died on September 29, 1970. (From the introductory note to his autobiography, written by William Munro Campbell in March, 1989.)
The documents were passed from Dr. Campbell to his nephew, William Munro Campbell. William Munro Campbell sent them to Janet Hendery, who donated them to the Osler Library.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of Dr. Campbell's partially edited and unfinished autobiography, which he began writing in the 1960s and continued until the time of his death in 1970. The work covers the period from, approximately, 1831 to 1932. Additionally, the fonds includes the medal Dr. Campbell received for serving as Past President of the Montreal Medico Chirurgical Society, 1952-53.
