Physician.

Born in Quebec in 1875, one of nine children of John Davidson and Cecelia Summerville, brother of G. E. Davidson, he came to Manitoba with his family in 1877. He attended school near his home then went to the Winnipeg Collegiate Institute, after which he decided to become a doctor and enrolled in the Manitoba Medical College. He graduated in 1903 then became Superintendent of the St. Boniface Hospital for a year, afterwards moving to Manitou where he established a private medical practice. On 11 January 1905, he married Grace Shore (?-1951), a teacher at the Winnipeg Collegiate. He was a member of the Presbyterian church and the Masons. He died in 1944 and was buried in the St. John’s Cathedral Cemetery.
