Memorable Manitobans: Garner Gahan (1860-c1910)

Physician.

Born at Cheshire, England on 10 April 1860, son of M. Gahan and Ellen Revell, he received a classical education at Roscrea, Ireland. He then attended the Normal Schools of Science, of South Kensington, London, England for two years, then Queen’s College at Galway, Ireland, as a science scholar for four years. He then spent two years more in the Medical Department of Queen’s College, after which he studied at the Carmichael College of Medicine, Dublin, for two years, and graduated from the Royal University of Ireland in 1882. He came to Winnipeg in 1885, studied at the Manitoba Medical School from 1890 to 1892, graduating in the Spring of the latter year.

He took charge of the medical practice of R. S. Thornton at Deloraine for a year before moving to Hartney. On 17 January 1894, he married Edith Barbara Alcock (1877-?). They had at least four children: Berell Gahan (b 1894), Eileen Gahan (b 1895), Gerald Charles Gahan (b 1900), and Revell Arthur Gahan (b 1906). He was a member of the IOOF, IOF, and COF.
