Dr George Redpath (1892-1951)

A new page has been added to my NZ Genealogy Project website, a page with newspaper articles about Dr George Redpath (1892-1951).

Dr George Redpath

George was described as a brilliant student, winning scholarships so he could attend high school and medical school.  The day after New Zealand declared war on 4 August 1914, George, together with 20 other final year medical students, volunteered to join the Expeditionary Force as medical officers. He served in the army medical corps throughout the war and returned to New Zealand in 1918 suffering from shell shock, malaria and stress.

George worked as a medical practitioner, but kept getting into trouble because of alcoholism. Newspaper articles on the new page chronicle the various trials he was involved in when he got into trouble. He eventually settled in Wellington but did not practice.
