Dr. Edmund Clarke Kinkead - Optician and Physician

Edmund Clarke Kinkead was born in Kingston on July 18th, 1873, the eldest of the twelve children of Edward Daniel and Ursulena Clarke Kinkead. He was educated at the Collegiate School, then the best school in Kingston, and at schools in England. He worked in the Drug Department of his father’s store in Kingston.

He studied optics in Toronto in the mid-1890s and then ran the Optical Department of his father’s establishment; later he started his own office as an optician. He studied medicine at Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada and graduated M.D. and C.M.

He practised in Jamaica and later in Central America, where he was in charge of the United Fruit Company’s Hospital, in Bocas-del-Toro.

He went to Britain around 1908 and graduated at Edinburgh as L.R.C.P, and L.R.C.S. and at Glasgow as L.F.P. and S.

At the end of World War I he migrated to the U.S.A.; he died in Boston in 1928. He was married twice, and was survived by his four children. The Kinkead family still operates their pharmacy on Port Royal Street.

In 1910 the Jamaica Times described Dr E. C. Kinkead as ‘Kindly, sympathetic, good to the poor. A worthy son of a worthy father.’

See You in Jamaica

First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Kudos!
