Dr. Barclay McKone completed his medical training in the mid-1940s and went directly into treating those with tuberculosis in Hamilton, and later tuberculosis rehabilitation work in London, Ontario. From there he was invited by the Director of Indian Health Services to become the medical superintendent of the Moose Factory Indian Hospital, a task he undertook on 1 January 1951 and held until August 1954. In 1955 he led one unit of three which undertook a major medical expedition through the eastern Arctic to investigate illness in the area.
