Wilfred Albert Wilson

Dr. Wilfred A. Wilson, one of Edmonton's best known and most highly respected medical practitioners, has successfully followed his profession in this city for eighteen years, gaining that skill which is acquired only through broad experience and continued study. He was born at Carleton Place, Ontario, in 1874, and is of Scotch lineage in both the paternal and maternal lines. His parents were Joseph and Martha (Patterson) Wilson, the former of whom was born at Carleton Place in 1844. He was there married in 1867, and his death occurred in 1888, when he had reached the age of forty-four years. His widow survived him for many years, passing away in 1922.

The public schools of his native town afforded Wilfred Albert Wilson his early educational opportunities and he afterward entered the medical department of McGill University at Montreal, Quebec, from which he was graduated in 1900. He then became an interne at Verdun Hospital of that city and a year later went to London and Edinburgh for further study, spending a year in the leading hospitals there. The next two years were devoted to travel and in 1903 he returned to Canada, opening an office in Edmonton in February, 1904. He was not long in demonstrating his professional ability and the passing years have brought him a large and constantly increasing practice. His professional activities have brought him into close relations with many households and he commands the high regard of those to whom he has ministered and the respect and deference of his fellow practitioners.

Dr. Wilson was married at Ottawa, the capital city, on the 20th of October, 1911, to Miss Edith P. Tait, a daughter of Robert Tait, deceased, whose birth occurred in London, Ontario. Dr. and Mrs. Wilson have four children. The Doctor is a Conservative in his political views and in religious faith is a Presbyterian. He is a Master Mason and his professional connections are with the Edmonton Academy of Medicine, the University of Alberta Faculty of Medicine, the Alberta and the Canadian Medical Associations and the American College of Surgeons. He has always kept in close touch with the trend of modern professional thought, research and investigation and as a member of the medical fraternity he has attained high rank among those whose skill is uniformly acknowledged.
