Dr. Harold Egbert Alexander is one of the foremost physicians and surgeons of Saskatoon. He was born in Woodstock, New Brunswick, on the 31st of July, 1884, a son of S. D. and Alma (Yerxa) Alexander, like- wise natives of New Brunswick. The father has been active in educa- tional circles for many years, but is now living retired on a farm north of Saskatoon, where he has resided since 1918. Mrs. Alexander taught school for about five years. In the pursuit of his education Harold Egbert Alexander attended the public schools of his birthplace and likewise the Fredericton high school. Subsequently he became a student in the University of New Brunswick and then enrolled in the Medical School of the University of Toronto, from which institution he was graduated with the M. D. degree in 1910. He then went to New York city and for two years attended the New York Post Graduate Medical Hospital. In 1912 he came to Saskatoon and es- tablished offices for the practice of his chosen profession. He soon built up an extensive and important patronage and is conceded to be one of the foremost members of his profession in the city and district. For six years Dr. Alexander took care of all surgical work in Lloydminster, Saskatche- wan, and he also did surgical work in the Davidson, Saskatchewan, Hos- pital during the Great war. Since that time he has devoted his entire time and attention to his practice at Saskatoon. Aside from his professional interests the Doctor owns and operates a fine farm fifteen miles north of Saskatoon and makes a specialty of breeding and raising pure-blooded shorthorn cattle. In November, 1913, Dr. Alexander was married to Miss Edith Fegg, a daughter of W. T. and Lodina (Hill) Pegg, natives of Blenheim, On- tario. Mr. Pegg has engaged in farming for many years in Ontario and is a highly respected and esteemed member of the community in which he resides. To Dr. and Mrs. Alexander four children have been born: Mar- garet, six years of age; Robert, five years of age; Doris, four years old; and William, aged one month. Since attaining his majority the Doctor has given his political allegiance to the Liberal party and he maintains an active interest in party affairs, although he has never sought nor de- sired political preferment. He is well informed on all important ques- tions and issues of the day and is always interested in the healthful growth and advancement of Saskatoon. His religious faith is that of the Baptist church. Fraternally Dr. Alexander is affiliated with the Masons and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
