      For more than a quarter of a century Dr. Peter M. Campbell of Lethbridge has been engaged in the practice of medicine, and the record of his efforts is written in terms of success. He is recognized as one of the most able physicians and surgeons of this part of the country and today enjoys an extensive practice of a distinctively representative character. Dr. Campbell is a native of Admaston, Ontario, born on the 9th of February, 1872. His parents, John and Jane (Connery) Campbell, were also of Canadian birth but the Campbell family is of Scotch lineage, the grandfather, Peter Campbell, having been born in the land of hills and heather, whence he came to the new world with his parents when a lad of seven years, the family home being established in this country. He devoted his entire life to farming. The grandfather in the maternal line was a native of Ireland and also arrived in Canada in early life. John Campbell devoted his life to agricultural pursuits and lived for many years on one place, there passing away in 1921. His widow is seventy-eight years of age and is still a resident of Ontario. They were the parents of eight children, six of whom are living. Mrs. Campbell's religious faith is that of the Presbyterian church, to which Mr. Campbell also belonged, and his political views were in accord with the principles of the Conservative party.

      Peter M. Campbell, the eldest of the family of eight children, pursued his education in the Renfrew high school and afterward took an art course in Queen's University at Kingston, Ontario, and then in preparation for his chosen profession he matriculated as a medical student at Queen's and was graduated with the M. D. degree in 1896. Immediately afterward he began practice in Beachburg, Ontario, where he remained until 1900. when he made his way westward, with Cardston as his destination. For six years he was a representative of the profession in that place and in 1906 he removed to Lethbridge, where he has since made his home. Here he at once opened an office and through the intervening period of seventeen years he has steadily advanced in his profession and has rendered most valuable aid to his fellow townsmen, by reason of his highly developed skill and his comprehensive understanding of the scientific principles of medicine and surgery.

      In 1904 Dr. Campbell was united in marriage to Miss Esther Scott, who was born in Paisley, Ontario, and there pursued her education. They have one child, Jean, who was born in 1908 and is now in school. The parents hold membership in the Presbyterian church and Dr. Campbell is also a member of the Masonic fraternity, loyally following the teachings of the order as he goes in and out among his fellowmen. His real recreation comes from mountain climbing and he gets the greatest enjoyment out of making the difficult ascent of the Rocky mountains. The major part of his time and energy, however, is given to his profession. He has taken postgraduate work in New York and in Rochester, Minnesota, and further keeps in touch with advanced professional thought and progress through his membership in the Alberta Medical Society and the Canadian Medical Association. Thoroughness has ever characterized his study and he is keenly
