Biographical history

Mabel Gray was born near Brampton, Ontario. She taught school for some time before enrolling in the nursing program at Winnipeg General Hospital in 1904. After graduation, she remained on staff as an instructor. Gray left the hospital in 1919 to study health nursing in Boston. She then spent several years in Saskatchewan, where she organized a course for nursing housekeepers. In 1925, Gray was appointed Assistant Professor of Nursing and Health at the University of British Columbia. In this capacity, she directed the nursing program until her retirement in 1941. Throughout her career, Gray participated in nursing organizations' affairs, national and provincial and, in 1927, served as president of the Canadian Nurses Association. Later she served as president of the Registered Nurses' Association of British Columbia. Gray's retirement years were spent in Vancouver. She enjoyed lawn bowling and at one time served as president of the Point Grey Lawn Bowling Club. Throughout the years, she maintained contact with the Winnipeg General Hospital School of Nursing. Up to her death, she took an active interest in the Vancouver branch of Alumni affairs.
