A well known specialist of Regina is Dr. Hugh MacLean, who was born in Glasgow, Scotland, on the 30th of January, 1878, a son of Archi- bald and Margaret (Nairny) MacLean, who came from their native country to Canada in 1887 and located in Ontario. The father engaged in gardening and raising fruits and he was a manager of a large farm in that province. To Mr. and Mrs. MacLean five sons were born, Hugh being the third in order of birth. Throughout his life the father gave his political allegiance to the Liberal party and he maintained an active interest in local affairs. He was a member of the Presbyterian church. For many years he was chairman of the Liberal Association. His death was deeply regretted by his family and many friends. Mrs. MacLean survives her husband and is making her home in Fort William. She is a consistent member of the Presbyterian church. In the pursuit of his education Hugh MacLean attended the schools of Lambton district and the Petrolia high school. He was graduated from the University of Toronto in 1906, with the M. D. degree and in the same year took up practice at Lang, Saskatchewan, where he remained until 1913, when he came to Regina. Dr. MacLean has taken consider- able postgraduate work and he is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He recently returned from a trip to South America with associates of the college. Associated with him in the practice of his pro- fession are Dr. Martin and Dr. Ritchie.

In 1907 Dr. MacLean was married to Miss Susan Weir, a native of Ontario, who received her education in the public schools of that province and taught there for some time. She also engaged in educational work in Regina for a number of years.
