Memorable Manitobans: Spurgeon Campbell (1870-1935)


Born at Iona, Ontario on 15 April 1870, he began medical studies at Western University in London, Ontario then completed it at the Manitoba Medical College in 1904. He practiced medicine with N. J. MacLean and, after returning from military overseas with the ambulance corps in the First World War, with E. W. Montgomery. He was a member of the voluntary staff of the Winnipeg General Hospital until about 1930. He was a member of the Manitoba Club, St. Charles Country Club, and Pine Ridge Golf Club. He died of a heart attack at Winnipeg on 10 February 1935 and was buried at St. Thomas, Ontario.
