Dr. Bryan, Nipigon's First MD

This is the south-west corner of Dr. Bryan's cabin. Dressing table, sink,
 drug and surgical supply shelves made of empty dynamite boxes.

Slim Bouchard and Dr. Bryan leaving Nipigon for the Mission.

Dr. Bryan referred to himself as the Doctor on Snowshoes.
The Museum Archives have some of his writings
describing how he traveled.

From 1905 to 1908
 Dr. Bryan looked after the men of the Northern Trans- Continental Railway construction sites
 from Armstrong to Hearst.
By rail, canoe, dog-sled and snowshoe.
