Logan (ca. 1900-1952), a resident of Lindsay, Ontario, was one of the founders of Physicians Services Incorporated, a health insurance program which was developed under the Auspices of the Ontario Medical Association in the late 1940's. This program was the forerunner of the present government health program. Incidently, Dr. Logan was also the personal physician to the Honourable Leslie M. Frost.
