The Dr. Ernest A. Boxall Bursary

Established by Ernest A. Boxall, Meds '45. I was a son of a single mother. I had found out about the Susan Near scholarships for provinces, applied and was accepted for 3 years. At the end of this time (medicine was a seven year course), I was faced with leaving Queen's. The Dean recruited Kingston citizens to finance my continuation. Fortunately, the Canadian Army conscripted us as privates (in 1942) at privates pay and I was able to continue without help from Kingston citizens. I owe everything to Queen's and this is why I have kept a bursary to 4th year med students so they don't have to quit medicine at Queen's.
