Notice biographique

Dr. Walter Brooks Crowe was a prominent physician in the Trenton, Ontario area. He was born around 1875 in Stockdale, Ont., the eldest son of Jane A. Hagerman and George Crowe, a contractor and builder from the Trenton area, youngest son of the Rev. John Brooks Crowe. He graduated from the Trinity College Medical School in 1896. He subsequently undertook post graduate work in Edinburgh and Scotland and received further qualifications (L.R.C.P. & S. Edin.) (L.F.P. & S. Glas.). After returning to Canada, he first went to Manitoba with a view of settling there, but after two years decided to move back permanently to Trenton. During World War I he served as a medical examiner with the district regiment of the Canadian Army. He was Hastings County coroner for some time and also served as Medical Health Officer of Trenton. In addition, he was active in the Masonic fraternity, and several other societies. Dr. Crowe married Alice May Stevenson, daughter of Dr. John Alexander Stevenson of Trenton, in 1901. They had two children, a son and a daughter. Dr. Crowe died in Trenton, Ontario on March 20, 1957.
