Earle I. Brodie was a doctor who practiced in Winnipeg in the 1930s and then in Ontario, South Dakota and California. He met his wife, Marion, a nurse, at the St. Boniface Hospital. The Centre, located in the Health Sciences Centre complex on 727 McDermot Avenue, was named as a result of their substantial gift to the University of Manitoba and was dedicated on 14 June 1996. It houses the medical library, bookstore, and gymnasium.
