Dr. Claude Vernon Jamieson
limits his practice to diseases of the eye, ear, nose and throat, and
since establishing his residence in Edmonton his professional activities
have been rewarded by a gratifying measure of success. He was born at
Almonte, Ontario, in 1881, and is of Scotch ad Irish descent. his
father, the late Joseph Jamieson, was born in Lanark county, Ontario, in
1838, and in that province he married Elizabeth Carss, whose death
occurred in 1916. The father died in March, 1923.
After completing his
public school training, Claude Vernon Jamieson attended the Guelph
Collegiate Institute, a preparatory school, and in 1907 was graduated in
medicine from the University of Toronto. In 1909 he went to London,
England, for postgraduate work, and for two years walked the hospitals
of that city. He then returned to Canada and later took a postgraduate
course in the States, pursuing his studies at Chicago, Illinois. Since
1912 he has been a resident of Edmonton and his practice is now one of
large proportions. He specializes in diseases of the eye, ear, nose and
throat, of which he has acquired a thorough understanding, and correctly
applies his knowledge to the needs of his patients. He has never lost
the attitude of a student toward his profession and utilizes every
available opportunity to perfect himself in his chosen vocation.
Dr. Jamieson was married
at Toronto, Ontario, on September 4, 1915, to Miss Meta Cross, a
daughter of the late William Henry Cross, of that city. Dr. and Mrs.
Jamieson have two sons: John Henry, who was born in 1916; and Robert
Carss, born in 1918. Dr. Jamieson is a Conservative in his political
views and his religious faith is that of the Anglican church. His
professional connections are with the Edmonton Academy of Medicine and
the Alberta Medical Association, and he is also a member of the Edmonton
Golf and Country Club. He is a man of high ideals and purposes, deeply
interested in the scientific and humanitarian phases of his profession,
and with progress as his watchword he has gained that success which
follows earnest effort and marked ability.
