Biographical history

Margaret Ellen Cameron was born August 14, 1910 in Winnipeg. She attended St. Mary’s academy and Kelvin high school in Winnipeg. After graduating as an RN from the Winnipeg General Hospital in 1933, she did private nursing for four years. Then she accepted the post of resident nurse at a prestigious prep school for boys in Connecticut (Avon Old Farms School) and served there four years. Margaret then decided to further her education: she moved to New York City and enrolled in Science at Columbia University while working full time at St. Luke’s Hospital. She earned both Bachelor and Master degrees (BS in 1945 and MS in 1947). During this period, her duties at St. Luke’s evolved to science instructor for four years and then Assistant Director of Nursing Education for a further four years. Margaret returned home to become Assistant Director of Nursing at the Winnipeg General for a year before becoming Director of Nursing, which position she held for thirteen years. After she retired, she came to British Columbia to explore the coast, but found Prince Rupert needed somebody able to be Director of Nursing at a new regional hospital. After four years, she retired again, settling in Victoria. She died November 14, 2001.
