Name of creator
James R. Lockhart was born in Bristol, New Brunswick. He enrolled at McGill University around 1912, but left off his studies at the outbreak of the First World War. He was a Private in the original unit that staffed the No. 3 Canadian General Hospital formed by McGill University in France. There, he met his first wife, Nursing Sister Anne Elliot from Wingham, Ontario, whom he married in 1922. Lockhart returned to McGill as a medical student in 1918 and graduated in 1921. During his early career, he practiced in Edmundston, NB, and Wingham, ON. In the 1930s, Lockhart established a medical practice in Carleton County, New Brunswick, where he participated in founding a private hospital in the village of Bath. He remarried twice and died 1980.
