Lieutenant Colonel Theodore Howell Leggett MD CM, was born in Exeter Ontario on June 4, 1878, although he moved to Almonte as a child where he obtained his early education (a classmate of the renowned sculptor, Robert Tait McKenzie). Later graduating from McGill medical school in 1901, he joined the medical staff of the County Carleton Protestant Hospital, and later the Ottawa Civic Hospital. Keenly interested in military affairs, he served as secretary for several years of the Association of Medical Officers of the Militia of Canada. With the outbreak of War, he was placed in charge of surgery for the returned men of the Ottawa District, commanding No.2 Field Ambulance of the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. In 1937, he was installed as President of the Canadian Medical Association, later receiving, in February of 1951, the Academy of Medicine's Citation for fifty years in medical practice, just four months before his passing. A fine numismatic memento of a distinguished medical career, presumably given to Dr. Leggett by the executive of the CMA.
