Haywood believes that Osler was appointed as a full Attending Physician of the Montreal General Hospital on May 23, 1878. He provides quotations from the Minutes of the meeting during which Osler's appointment was secured. He has not found any record of Osler having been placed in charge of the smallpox ward. However, Osler did work in the ward starting around 1876 and contracted smallpox himself. Haywood suggests that Cushing contact Maude Abbott for further information on Osler's career in Montreal.
