Memorable Manitobans: Charles Burton Stewart (1902-1987)

Physician and surgeon.

Born at Plevna, Ontario on 16 March 1902, his early years were spent at Bath, Ontario before his family moved to a farm near Elgin. He attended Wesley College then graduated from the Manitoba Medical College in 1928. He spent a year with the Hudson Bay Railway at Cranberry Portage then did further medical studies at the University of Edinburgh and University hospitals at London (England) and Berlin (Germany). He returned to Winnipeg as an original member of the Winnipeg Clinic where he worked in the Urology Department and eventually served as Chairman of the Executive Council and Clinic Vice-President. He was also Surgeon-in-Chief at the Winnipeg General Hospital, President of the Winnipeg Medical Society, President of the Canadian Urological Society, and Head of the Department of Urology at the University of Manitoba. On 3 November 1934, he married Inez Vida Paget (1906-1982, daughter of A. Percy Paget) at Tuxedo and they had three sons. He died at Winnipeg on 5 November 1987 and was buried in the Mapleton Cemetery.
