Storydello: AP Knight - Professor

All this time, while he was teaching and serving as the registrar of the Women's Medical College, Archie kept studying medicine. After eight years, he had taken all the courses and passed his exams, so in 1886 he graduated as a medical doctor.

Principal Grant hired him as a professor in the medical faculty at Queen's University, on the condition that Archie would promise to spend some time in the "old country" studying medical education.

So Archie went to Glasgow, studied hard, and at the same time was in charge of buying scientific equipment for the college. When he came back to Canada in 1894, he continued to teach Animal Biology, Physiology and Histology at Queens.
