Abstract: 

Jarvis offers information regarding the Weston School that he hopes will be of service to Cushing for his biography of Osler. It was Johnson's father, W.A. Johnson, that started Osler on his scientific career. Osler was not an exceptionally brilliant scholar as a boy, but had great powers of concentration and determination. Osler broke the record for throwing a cricket ball. In 1867, Osler matriculated at Trinity and intended to enter the Church. After a violent fight with the Provost, he decided to take up medicine.
