Gordon Cameron Gray, M.D., F.A.C.S.

The professional career of Dr. Gordon C. Gray has been marked by continuous progress that has won him place with Edmonton's leading surgeons and his success is the result of thorough Preparation and untiring effort. He was born in Sarnia, Ontario, in 1884, and comes of Scotch ancestry in both the paternal and maternal lines. He is a son of George M. and Alexia (Cameron) Gray, also natives of the province of Ontario, who are now residing in Sarnia. They were married in Ontario and the father has reached the age of seventy-three years, his birth having occurred in 1849.

The grammar and high schools of Sarnia afforded Gordon Cameron Gray his early educational privileges and his medical training was obtained in the University of Toronto, from which he was graduated in 1907, winning a gold medal for high scholarship. The next two years were spent as an interne in the New York City Hospital and during the last six months of that period he acted as chief of staff. He then devoted ten months to postgraduate work in London, England, Berlin, Germany, and Paris, France, the leading medical centers of Europe, and returned to America in 1912. In the following year he opened an office in Edmonton and in the intervening period of ten years he has built up a large practice, specializing in surgery, in which he has developed expert skill. He is also a member of the faculty of the University of Alberta, delivering lectures on surgery at that institution of learning.
