Memorable Manitobans: W. E. Raymond Coad (1872-?)

Physician, pharmacist.

Born in Huron County, Ontario on 30 September 1872, son of Thomas Coad and Esther Halpenny, he attended public schools at Wingham and Harrison, later entering the medical department of the University of Toronto, from which he graduated in 1897. He interned for six months at the Toronto General Hospital and, in the spring of 1898, received the master of surgery degree from Trinity College (Toronto). In August 1898, he moved to Manitoba and established a medical practice at Franklin. He established a drug store there three years later. He was a member of the British Medical Association and the Methodist Church.
