Memorable Manitobans: Frank S. Keele (c1859-1918)

Physician and surgeon.

Born in Toronto, he received his education there, graduating in the early 1880s from the University of Toronto. When he came west he first settled in Gladstone, later moving to High Bluff and then to Portage la Prairie, where he lived for over 30 years. He specialized in eye, ear, nose and throat diseases. He was a member of the first Executive Committee of the Manitoba Medical Association when it was formed in 1908, and later its President (1910-1911). He died at Portage la Prairie on 18 November 1918, after a lengthy illness, survived by his wife.
