Name of creator
The Charles Camsell Hospital was opened in 1967 to serve the needs of severely ill Indian and Inuit northerners. The new building replaced one originally built in 1913 as a Jesuit College and used by the American military from 1942 as headquarters for the Northwest Service Command. Two years later the Canadian government used the building for returning veterans and later for natives with tuberculosis. The new building was named for a previous minister of Lands and Resources, Dr. Charles Camsell, who was born in the Northwest Territories and served as a doctor in the Arctic for many years. Dr. Camsell died in 1958.
