  • Notes 
    • DR. W. J. FISCHER, M.A.

      The recent death of Dr. W. J. Fischer, M.A., of Waterloo, Ontario, has bereft the medical profession of Ontario of not only an exemplary member, but a litterateur of exceptional promise. A graduate of Western University Medical School Class 1902, Dr. Fischer whilst a student published his "Tales by the Wayside". This was followed by five other volumes of poetry and fiction, all of distinct merit. He also contributed largely to various journals and newspapers. Dr. Fischer was a man of high and noble ideals; and impressed all with whom he came in contact by his many-sided character his keen powers of observation, his warm heartedness, his poetic temperament. He was also an accomplished musician. Although a comparatively young man, having scarcely rounded his fortieth year, Dr. Fischer possessed one of the best literary libraries in the province. His whole life was an inspiration, stimulating and ennobling to those who came in contract with him. K. L. G.1a
