72   MEN OF' CANADA,

G EORGE A. BINGHAM, M.D., M.B., practicing physician, Toronto, Out., was born on the 28th of August, 186o, in Durham County, Out., the son of William and Elizabeth Mills Bingham. He was educated in the Bowmanville High School, and having matriculated in arts, taught for two years in Harriston, Wellington County. He then entered Toronto University, and soon left the university to begin professional studies in Trinity Medical College, Toronto, from which he graduated with honors. After graduation he became assistant anatomical demonstrator in Trinity Medical Col

lege, and in 1889 professor of practical anatomy in the same university. He is now a member of the acting staff, and pathologist in Toronto General Hospital. Dr. Bingham has reached his present position by his own endeavors, and as he has hardly arrived at middle life, will, doubtless, at no distant day, occupy a prominent place in his profession. He is a member of the Presbyterian Church, also of the Masonic Order, the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and other fraternal societies. Dr. Bingham's career is an illustration of what our Canadian youth may attain by the right use of opportunities.
