Biographical history

Dr. McGarry was born in Montreal, matriculated from the Ontario Ladies College (Whitby, Ontario) and received both her B.Sc (1937) and her M.D. (1947) from McGill. As an undergraduate she was active in many student societies such as the McGill Women's Medical Society, the Medical Undergraduates' Society and the Osler Society. She was Vice-President of her medical class for three years. After receiving her medical degree McGarry was awarded a Post Graduate Medical Fellowship from the National Research Council of Canada, and, later, specialist diplomas from the Royal College (Canada) and the Quebec College of Physicians and Surgeons. Her particular field of interest was Endrocrinology.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Most of the collection consists of certificates and diplomas awarded to Eleanor McGarry from McGill as well as from other medical associations. There are exam results from all stages of her education, souvenirs from medical student days and a small amount of personal correspondence. As well there are two bound photo albums containing studio portraits from the late 1800s, not all of which are identified.

Included in the McGarry fonds are papers from Dr. Percy Wright (b. 1882). Dr. Wright graduated from McGill (M.D. 1908). He was a consultant Otolaryngologist at the Children's Memorial Hospital (later the Montreal Children's Hospital), the Verdun General Hospital and The Catherine Booth Hospital. His collection of correspondence, journals, and lectures falls mainly between 1930 and 1939.
