Charles A. Hunter
Biography of Charles A. Hunter
After graduating from the University of Aberdeen, Charles A. Hunter undertook postgraduate training in London and Berlin. He then immigrated to Canada where he settled into practice in Winnipeg as specialist in internal medicine and worked in the Winnipeg General Hospital. During World War I Hunter served in Europe as an army medical officer. In 1910 he was appointed to the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba, and in 1928 he was appointed professor of medicine. He was unhappy with the irksome administrative responsibilities, however, and resigned in the following year but continued teaching until his retirement from his academic duties in 1933. Hunter was regarded as the leading diagnostician in western Canada and he retained his private consulting practice until a few years before his death in 1955 at the age of 82 years.
