General Notes: Husband - Charles Frederick Brears M.D., C.M.

According to the McGill Directory of Graduates, 1913; Charles Frederick Brears graduated from McGill in 1898, receiving the M.D., C.M. degree which was the standard medical degree (M.D. = Medicinae Doctor (Doctor of Medicine), C.M. = Chirurgiae Magister (Master in Surgery)).The "Annual Calendar of the Faculty of Medicine" of McGill University provides a great deal of information about the course of study and the achievements of students. There are the following listings for C. F. Brears in the class lists:Session 1893-94:First Year:Brears, C.F. Regina, Northwest Territories (Regina is now the capital of the province of Saskatchewan, which was formed out of part of the former Northwest Territories). This would have been Brears' "home town".He is listed as passing in Botany.Session 1894-95:Second Year:Brears, C.F., Regina, NWT.He is listed as passing in Chemistry, Histology, Practical Chemistry.Session 1895-96:Third Year:Brears, C.F., Montreal, Quebec.He is listed as passing in Hygiene, Medical Jurisprudence, Mental Diseases, He also passed Anatomy, which is a second year course.Session 1896-97:Fourth Year:Brears, C.F., Regina, NWT.Sadly, the examination results for individual courses were not included in the announcement for this year.Session 1897-98Fourth Year:Brears, C.F., Regina. Again, no listing for individual subjects, graduates or award winners.In the following year C.F. Brears, Regina, NWT, is listed as having become a doctor in 1898. His name does not appear in any list of graduating or class prizes.The course of study he would have followed is laid out in the Calendar for 1893-94 as:anatomy, chemistry, practical chemistry; physiology, histology, pharmacology and therapeutics, medicine, clinical medicine, surgery, clinical surgery, midwifery, gynaecology, medical jurisprudence, ophthalmology and otology, hygiene and public health, botany or zoology, pathology, laryngology and rhinology. Students were also required to spend at a hospital, have compounded medicine for six months, act as a clinical clerk for 6 months in a hospital.I also noticed in the British "Medical Directory" from 1913 that Dr Brears subsequently earned a L.R.C.P.(Licentiate, Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh), and a L.R.C.S. (Licentiate, Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh), and a L.F.P.S.
