This empty late 19th century envelope of dentist George H. Weagant’s Pure Copper Amalgam was donated this week by Judith Kennedy of St. Catharines in memory of Edith Weagant, G.H.’s daughter in law and wife to Dentist Dr. Harry Weagant of Cornwall.
The Doctor’s will was kindly donated along with this envelope.
Dr. Weagant “one of Canada’s best known dentists” died on July 8, 1899 age 47. Born in Morrisburg, he worked in Cornwall for 25 years and was ex-president of the Eastern Ontario Dental Association.
Dr. Harry Weagant in what are probably his graduation robes. Harry was George’s son, he worked in Cornwall from 1925 to 1960. This photograph was donated by Judith Kennedy, the doctor’s niece.
Dr. Harry Weagant as a young boy!
Dr. Harry Weagant served during World War I as an artilleryman.
This is an example of the nature of material in the archives at the Cornwall Community Museum, made possible through the generosity of such people as Ms. Kennedy.
