Notice biographique

John Clarence Webster, son of James and Roslin Webster, was born in Shediac, New Brunswick on 21 October 1863. Educated at Shediac Grammar School and Mount Allison, Edinburgh, Cincinnati, and Dalhousie universities, he took post graduate studies at Leipzig, Berlin, and Edinburgh. In 1899 he married Alice Kessler Lusk, and they had two sons and one daughter.

Between 1890 and 1896 Webster was first assistant to the professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Edinburgh University, subsequently holding the posts of lecture in Gynecology (McGill University), assistant gynecologist (Royal Victoria Hospital), professor of obstetrics and gynecology (Rush Medical College), and gynecologist-in-chief (Presbyterian Hospital, Chicago). He retired from active practice in 1920, taking up residence in Shediac. During his career, he wrote numerous medical papers as well as articles on various aspects of Maritime history.

Respected by his peers, Webster was named a fellow of several societies including the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Royal Society of Canada, the American College of Surgeons, and the American Gynaecological Society. He also served on the Historical Sites and Monuments Board of Canada and the Council of Education and as vice-president of both the Canadian Historical Association and the New Brunswick Historical Society. Dr. John Clarence Webster died in 1950.
