Biographical history

Dr. Simon Jauvoish was a Private in the 196th Western Canadian Universities Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force. In 1917, he was stationed in Seaford, Sussex, England. The predominant themes in his writing reflect his experiences of the First World War. Jauvoish completed his first year as a student of medicine at the University of Manitoba in the 1919-1920 school year. The addresses on his typescripts indicate that he resided both in La Riviere and Winnipeg, Manitoba. He became a physician and surgeon and was practicing up to the 1950s.
