Biographical history

Leonore Saunders came to Canada in 1949 from Manchester, England. Having attained a diploma in physical therapy in England, Saunders was responsible for assisting with the legal process of having physical therapy become a certi­fied occupation in Manitoba. The Physiotherapy Bill 39 became law on March 30, 1957. She attended the University of Manitoba’s School of Medical Rehabilitation (S.M.R.) and graduated from the program in 1972. Saunders was involved in social activities including the Faculty Women’s Association of the University of Manitoba, of which she was President from 1968 to 1969, and serving as the Chairman of the Medical Faculty Women’s Association/Club in 1970. Saunders was married to Faculty of Medicine staff member, Dr. Michael G. Saunders, allowing her to represent the medical department in these women’s organizations comprised of faculty members and spouses of faculty members.
