Notes

First edition. A series of letters written by MacKenzie between May 1915 and June 1916. Includes a memoir by his wife Kathleen Cuffe Mackenzie. John Mackenzie only served briefly before being repatriated home to Canada because of a heart infection, which stayed with him and caused his untimely death in 1922. During The Great War Mackenzie joined No.4 Canadian General Hospital, becoming a captain in April 1915 and head of its laboratory. Staffed largely from Toronto's hospitals and the university, the unit went overseas the following month. From November to August 1916 Mackenzie served with it at Salonica (Thessaloniki), Greece, where his work on severe dysentery led to improved treatment. These war time letters were published posthumously. In addition to being an army officer, Mackenzie was also a scientist, civil servant and professor.
