A link with Grimsby's past was severed last week with the passing in Coboconck of Dr. Wiley Schell Millyard. Dr. Millyard, who practiced in Grimsby about a quarter of a century ago, was an uncle of C.D. Millyard, and during his long and active career he had resided in many parts of the province.

Dr. Millyard graduated from the University of Toronto in 1908, and joined the Grand Trunk Pacific as company doctor immediately after. Later he practiced in Grimsby and Capreol. For the past 20 years he has resided at Coboconck, where, in addition to his work as a physician, he was medical health officer for Bexley, Sommerville and Laxton townships in the Victoria-Haliburton district. It was his boast that in the 33 years during which he practiced medicine he had never lost one of the estimated 2,000 babies which he ushered into the world.

Dr. Millyard was born in Woodstock, the son of a Methodist clergyman, and during his student days achieved some fame as an athlete, being particularly prominent in hockey and lacrosse. He was a member of the United Church, and took a keen interest in the Liberal Party in Victoria County.

The late Dr. Millyard is survived by his wife,two sons, and three brothers. One of his brothers, the Rev. J.E.J. Millyard of London, Ont., is the father of C.D. Millyard. Funeral services were held at Coboconck last Saturday afternoon, with interment being made at the United Church there.
