Memorable Manitobans: Jacob Hollenberg (1914-1999)

Physician, surgeon.

Born at Winnipeg on 1 February 1914, son of Moses Hollenberg and Sarah Rosenstock, he was educated at Norquay School, St. John’s High School, and the University of Manitoba, receiving a medical degree from the latter in 1937. He began a general medical practice and, during the Second World War he served as a Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. He later trained as a surgeon and was certified in 1948. He became a member of the International College of Surgeons (1954) and the Royal College of Medicine and Surgery of Canada (1972). After the war, he moved his practice to join his brothers Michael, Abraham, Joseph and Charles at the Hollenberg Clinic. He later operated his own clinic until his death, which occurred on 17 July 1999.
