My grandparents and my father moved to Saskatoon in 1906. They lived in an apartment building near the current location of Toys R Us. My uncle, Walter Townsend had a jewelry store downtown. My father left Saskatoon to attend medical school at McGill in Montreal. Eventually, with support of the Saskatchewan Anti-Tuberculosis League, I believe he became the first Orthopedic Surgeon in Saskatoon. He spent most of his practice life in Saskatoon.
