Marjorie Howard Futcher, 1882-1969, was the third child of Dr. Robert Palmer Howard, Dean of McGill's Medical Faculty from 1883-1889, and his second wife Emily Severs Howard. Dr. Howard was one of William Osler's most admired professors and when the three children of his second marriage were orphaned in 1892, William and Grace Osler took a special interest in the children. In 1909, Marjorie married Thomas B. Futcher (d. 1938) who had been Osler's chief medical resident at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and practiced medicine in Baltimore.
