Toronto -- Early on as a physician, Elspie SHAVER found herself untangling stethoscopes from the clutch of curious infants. Back then, she wasn't given much choice in terms of where to practise. She was a woman doctor. Ergo, she'd work with mothers and babies - what could be more natural? So off she went to tend the growing families that attended a Well Baby Clinic in an East Toronto neighbourhood.
The history of Canada's Well Baby Clinics is often overlooked, but the work of those who staffed these centres, particularly a cadre of public health nurses (doctors worked there only one afternoon a week) shows an extraordinary effort to stem alarming rates of infant and child mortality. Most clinics were closed by the 1960s but variations exist today, mostly in rural or remote communities.
Seventy years ago, the clinics were frequented by poor women. After the Second World War, many of Doctor SHAVER's patients were among the 48,000 war brides who immigrated to Canada. According to Madeline SMILLIE, a nurse who worked with her at a clinic at Kew Gardens on Queen Street in Toronto, their facility experienced an influx of pregnant women and their small children, sometimes 90 women and twice that many children in one afternoon.
Children were immunized against smallpox, scarlet fever, diphtheria, measles, whooping cough, typhoid, tuberculosis, infantile paralysis and cerebrospinal meningitis. The clinic was typically staffed by four public health nurses who kept things going and handed out information, plus a couple of volunteers who helped calm anxious children. Doctor SHAVER did examinations once a week. The history of the clinics also includes plenty of mother-blaming. In those days, the business of babies and health care was a scientific matter, and professionals could be highly critical of what they considered to be ignorant and neglectful parents, primarily mothers.
Historian Cynthia COMACCHIO of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, studied Ontario's Well Baby Clinics and described their philosophy. "This doctor-designed educational crusade called for the creation of a new, improved, scientific mother, a thoroughly modern mother befitting the new industrial order," she said. "Modern motherhood was infused with the spirit of industry, with its unrelenting demands for regularity, scheduling, systematization, discipline, and productivity."
The birth of Canada's most famous little girls, the Dionne quintuplets, probably added to the highly regimented, doctor-driven approach to raising children. During their early years, the quints were accommodated in a purpose-built hospital compound under the care of Doctor Allan Roy Dafoe, who had delivered them.
To Ms. SMILLIE, Doctor SHAVER was a rare kind of doctor. What made her unusual was not so much that she was a woman, but rather that she spent time actually listening to the mothers as their babies fidgeted on their laps. "The patient wasn't in and out in 10 minutes, that's for sure. She got to know them better from spending more time with them."
Dr. SHAVER was also atypical in another respect. Back then, no doubt due to the sometimes patronizing attitudes of doctors in these clinics, it was out of the ordinary for nurses and doctors to get along well. But Doctor SHAVER and Ms. SMILLIE quickly became Friends and remained so for the next 60 years.
Dr. SHAVER spent her early years in Brampton, Ontario where she lived with her father, Lemen HALNAN, and her mother, Elspie HALNAN, until the family moved to Stratford, Ontario, when she was 9. She was a rough-and-tumble girl who preferred climbing trees and skating on the Avon River to puttering in the kitchen or playing with dolls. "She wasn't terrible domesticated," said Ms. SMILLIE, although she did recall a story about her friend shocking the community by winning a pie-baking contest in high school.
Her schoolteacher father had great expectations for his only child. He steered her toward a future as a physician from an early age, insisting that she excel in math and sciences and not fool around with her future. But his ambition for her didn't always match her ambition for herself. It was a perplexing and unusual contradiction. On one hand, he encouraged his daughter to pursue non-traditional women's work, while on the other, he gave her little freedom of choice and pressured her relentlessly in the worst patriarchal manner.
In 1930, very much on schedule and with excellent grades, she moved to the big city to begin pre-med studies at the University of Toronto. But about a month later, purely by chance, her father learned that she had gone behind his back and instead registered in pre-law. In a rage, he caught a train and rushed to Toronto, where he yanked her out of the program. He presented her with two choices: Either go to medical school and become a doctor, or return with him to Stratford and attend teacher's college.
"In the end, she went where she should have and she learned to love it," said Ms. SMILLIE. "So I don't know what she was thinking when she thought of law. In my opinion, she was a much better physician than she would have been a lawyer."
Dr. SHAVER graduated from medical school in 1938. In that year's graduation ceremony, there were 110 men and eight women. In the audience sat her deeply proud father. He died the following year.
By then, however, another man had entered her life. Some time between the demands of studying and satisfying her father's dreams, Dr. SHAVER found herself at a university dance in the arms of Victor SHAVER, who at 6 foot 4, was a tall match for her own 5-foot-10 stature.
Romance bloomed and they were married in 1940, soon after the outbreak of the Second World War. According to Ms. SMILLIE, Mr. SHAVER always believed it was his wife's careful attention to his heart (he had been born with a cardiac defect) that he managed to live so well. He became a high-school teacher and later a principal.
Dr. SHAVER interned at Saint_Joseph's Hospital in Toronto and spent a year at Women's College Hospital before going to work at the Well Baby Clinic. While doing her weekly clinic shifts, she also began a 14-year career as an anesthetist at the Toronto East General Hospital. Speculating about what it might have been like for a woman doctor in those days, Prof. COMACCHIO said the systemic challenges would have been stupendous, particularly at the Well Baby Clinic. On top of the animosity frequently experienced between nurses and attending physicians, where the doctors tended to demand subordination and obedience from both nurses and young mothers, Doctor SHAVER would have likely encountered another kind of complication.
"Women doctors had to take particular care not to 'over-identify' with women nurses," she wrote. "… Their gender made them 'inferior' to their male colleagues, while their profession made them 'superior' to the nurses… women doctors probably had to step very carefully so as to keep the professional hierarchy intact while also avoiding the nurses."
All the while, Doctor SHAVER developed a private practice. As truth would have it, Doctor SHAVER preferred adults over children and spent the rest of her 50-year career growing old alongside her patients. "In those days, the general public was not too familiar with female physicians. They weren't exactly rushing to them&hellip It took a long time [for Doctor SHAVER] to build up a practice."
Eventually, Doctor SHAVER worked out of her central Toronto home. In the late 1960s, Doctor SHAVER and her husband bought a second home in Brampton, where they spent weekends. In 1972, she turned 65 and spent the next 15 years working part time. But, said Ms. SMILLIE, she was never far from her doctor's bag - she left many a dinner party to make a house call.
Her good friend, Paddy Silverthorne, met Doctor SHAVER in 1983 at the Brampton Business and Professional Women's Club, where both women were members. Ms. Silverthorne was working for American Motors, while Doctor SHAVER was still working part time as a physician. By then, she was in her early 70s and continued to maintain a devoted core of patients.
"I valued Elspie's intellect and knowledge as far as medicine was concerned," Ms. Silverthorne said. "I felt that she had forgotten more than most of the medical profession had ever learned."
In 1995, Victor SHAVER died 56 years after their first dance together. They had no children, even though Doctor SHAVER had worked with hundreds of youngsters. "She was not gung ho on children," said Ms. SMILLIE.
What Doctor SHAVER really enjoyed was the chance to whip her Friends in a game of bridge or a round of golf, or to take long, slow scenic drives to Niagara Falls or to Florida.
Elspie SHAVER was born Elspie Roberta HALNAN on May 22, 1912, in Brampton, Ontario She died of natural causes on February 18, 2008, at Woodhall Park Specialty Care in Brampton. She was 95. She left no immediate survivors.
