Biographical history

Katherine Dewar was born on 13 November 1943 at Summerside, Prince Edward Island, the daughter of Robert and Mae (Profitt) Dewar. In 1963 she graduated from Prince of Wales College with an honours degree and the Samuel N. Robertson Memorial Scholarship. Following marriage and the birth of two children, Christopher and Paul Snively in Ontario, she returned to Prince Edward Island in 1968 and entered the diploma programme at the Prince County Hospital School of Nursing. In 1972, following graduation the previous year at the top of her class, Katherine became a nursing instructor with the Prince Edward Island School of Nursing, a career which spanned the next twenty-two years. Throughout her career she continued to study attaining a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Prince Edward Island and an M.A. Ed from St. Francis Xavier University in Atnigonish, Nova Scotia. She was active in her professional association locally, provincially and nationally and in 1987 received the Association of Nurses of P.E.I. scholarship.

Her interests include painting in oils and acrylics, sailing, genealogy, and historical research. She served on the Summerside Yacht Club executive, was President of the PEI Sailing Association, and sat on the board of the Canadian Yachting Association. She has contributed articles to "The Island magazine" and authored the book "Deoradh; the Dewars: storytellers and relic keepers" as well as co-authoring with Wayne Wright "This caring place: the history of the Prince County Hospital and School of Nursing".
