Dr. William Kirk Colbeck, 73, founder of the Colbeck Clinic and former president of the Ontario Medical Association, died Tuesday at Welland. He was a pioneer in radiology.

During World War I he served as a captain in the 55th Canadian Field Ambulance and was wounded at Passchendaele. He was a life member of the Canadian Legion.

During the fall of 1915 and the winter of 1916 he was the Medical Officer of the 98th Batt., then in formation, and examined all the Grimsby and district men who formed Company "B" of that unit.
