WILLIAM WALLACE IRWIN, D. D. S.
Dr. William Wallace Irwin, dean of the dental profession in Moose Jaw, has been practicing in this city ever since he completed his prof~ sional education in 1905. He was born in Kincardine, Bruce county, On- tario, in 1882, a son of John William and Lizzie (Barr) Irwin, the former a native of County Cavan, Ireland, and the latter of Glasgow, Scotland. Stanch Presbyterians in their religious faith, they took an active part in the work of that church for years. Politically John William Irwin voted with the Liberal party and for years held the office of school trustee on the Clinton, Ontario, local hoard. William Wallace Irwin attended the public and high schools in Clinton following which he took a commercial course in a local business college to prepare himself to go into his father's business. He worked in father's store for a short time, during which he became convinced that his talents did not lie along commercial lines. In 1902 the young man left the grocery and crockery business to go to Chicago, Illinois, to enter the Dental College of Northwestern University, from which he was grad- uated three years later. He opened an office in Moose Jaw not long after he had obtained his diploma from Northwestern and has been engaged in active practice in this city ever since, being the oldest dentist in Moose Jaw, in point of the number of years he has been practicing here. Dr. Irwin was married in 1908 to Dora E. McPherson, a native of Sagi- naw, Michigan, and a graduate trained nurse. Dr. Irwin has been a member of the Council of Saskatchewan College of Dental Surgeons for twelve years, and was president for a part of that time. He is president of the Moose Jaw Golf Club and the Prairie Club, and has held the golf championship and was the first president of the local dental society. He is a Mason and a Noble of the Mystic Shrine. Bibliography follows:
