Narrative

On their marriage certificate, both Irene and her husband listed their occupations as medical doctors. Irene graduated from Dalhousie School of Medicine, Halifax, in 1929. Her husband was in the same class, and a picture of both can be seen at http://alumni.medicine.dal.ca/Files/Alumni_Photos/Class_of_1929.pdf.

Irene and Lachlan were doctors at the Saint John TB Hospital. They wrote papers together: Skinner, G. F.; Macpherson, Lachlan, and Allen, Irene: Thoracoplasty for Tuberculosis , J. Thoracic Surg. 11:54 ( (Oct.) ) 1941;in the 1950s Lachlan was a member of the The American Association for Thoracic Surgery (1952 -1953).

I couldn't find an obituary for Irene in the Canadian Medical Journal, nor did the Dalhousie Medical Alumni Association have a date of death for her; however, from other family obituaries she had died before 2002.

The recorded date of death for Dr. Lachlan Macpherson is February 25, 1985.
