Dr. Henry P. Wright and the Mystery of His Family Photographs; or The Royal Navy, Napoleon and the Improvement of Health Care in Late 19th Century Ottawa
Speaker: Glenn Wright
Presentation: Dr. Henry P. Wright (b. 1851), born, raised and educated in Canada, was one of the best-known and influential medical doctors in Ottawa for many years until his untimely death in 1898. More than 115 years later, a packet of family photographs was sent from a woman in England to Ottawa Branch because the photos had an Ottawa “connection.” Important as it was that the photos were returned to Ottawa, who was Dr. Henry Wright and how did photos of his family find their way to England more than a century ago? Learn the answer to these questions and more in this exploration of Dr. Henry Wright, his family and his contribution to late 19th century Ottawa.
