Dr. C. L. MacMillan Archives – presented by Madison Martell
Dr. C. L. MacMillan served the Baddeck area as a county doctor and MLA for nearly 40 years. Join us to learn about new archival materials catalogued in the Beaton Institute, and discover how medicine was practiced in Cape Breton in the time before Medicare. CBU student Madison Martell will share her experience of archiving Dr. MacMillan’s records during her internship, describe the scope of the collection, and observe what the records can – and cannot – tell us. A discussion will follow the presentation, and audience members are encouraged to share their own family memories of early Cape Breton medical practice.
