Dates of existence



Dr. Archibald Edward Malloch was born on June 14, 1844, in Brockville, Ontario.

Educated at Queens’ University in Kingston, Ontario and at the University of Glasgow in Scotland (1867), where he served as a house surgeon for Dr. Joseph Lister, a founder of the antiseptic system of the treatment of wounds in surgery. Malloch became a firm believer in the method and, after his return to Canada in 1869, was likely the first in the country to use it in its fully developed form. He opened a private practice in Hamilton, Ontario. In 1870, he joined the Faculty of Medicine, Toronto Branch, University of Victoria College in the capacity of demonstrator of anatomy and lecturer on surgical anatomy. He later resumed his practice in Hamilton while also working at the Hamilton City Hospital where he met the resident physician William Osler and formed an enduring friendship with him.

In 1872, he married Helen Milne Ogston. After her death, he married Frances Mary Reynolds in 1877 and in 1892, he married Alice Barbara McNab. He died on August 6, 1919, in Hamilton, Ontario.
