Notes: Dennis Reid writes: (Tom) "Thomson first met John M. McRuer shortly after arriving in Toronto from Seattle - probably in 1905 - and before McRuer's graduation from the University of Toronto in 1907. They remained close friends until Dr. McRuer's death in June 1917, just before Thomson's drowning. Dr. McRuer practised medicine in Huntsville, a small town to the west of Algonquin Park, from 1907 until late in 1913. He had by then become seriously ill with tuberculosis and moved to Denver, Colorado, where he died."
