Name of creator
Russell Magee was born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1906. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1930 with a degree in medicine, followed by training in surgery. In 1942 he joined the Canadian Army Medical Corps. He served overseas in Europe until 1946. His wife, Agnes King Moffat, was also a medical doctor. Dr. Magee died in November 1972.
Scope and content
The collection consists of letters written by Magee to Charles and Marion Shaw, 1944-1946. The Shaws were the owners of the North American Leather Company in Omemee, Ontario. There are also letters (typed carbons) from Magee to Dr. Ody and Colonel Harris which may have been enclosed in letters to the Shaws; one letter (a typed carbon) from Shaw to Magee; a draft of an unsigned letter to Sherwood Lett about Magee; and a mimeographed report “Visit to Berlin”, unsigned but by Magee.
