Biographical history

Dr. R. Cameron Stewart, born in Montreal in 1885, graduated in medicine at McGill University and gained high honours in his course. He took up pediatrics soon after entering practice and was appointed clinical assistant in that department on the staff of the Royal Victoria Hospital under the late Dr. F. M. Fry. He remained a member of this department until his retirement in 1949, reaching the rank of Associate Pediatrician. Dr. Stewart belonged to the vanishing group of physicians practicing internal medicine with a leaning towards pediatrics. His special interest was in the infectious diseases, and he was on the staff of the Alexandra Hospital for Infectious Diseases for many years. Dr. Stewart was Assistant Demonstrator in Pediatrics, 1924-1927, and Demonstrator, 1928-1936 and 1943-1949 at McGill University. He was also Assistant Physician to the Student Health Service, 1946-1949. (Canadian Medical Association Journal v. 72, pg. 59, 1955)
