Biographical history

Clarence Gosse was a 1939 graduate of Dalhousie Medical School, class president and a founder of the Dalhousie Medical Journal. Born in Newfoundland in 1912, by 1922 he was living in Nova Scotia. After a year of post-graduate training in urology in Cleveland, he served overseas with the Canadian Army Medical Corps and was a member of one of the first surgical teams on D-Day. He served overseas for three years before being appointed a professor of urology at Dalhousie and chair of the Department of Urology at the Victoria General and Camp Hill hospitals. Dr. Gosse was active in his professional associations and the general community; he was appointed Nova Scotia's Lieutenant Governor in 1973, a post he held for five years. He died on 21 December 1996.
