C. GRANT SUTHERLAND
One of Woodland’s capable and useful citizens is C. Grant Sutherland, who is rendering appreciated service as assistant secretary of the Woodland Clinic Hospital. He was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on the 29th of May, 1899, and was reared there, receiving his early education in the grade schools of that city. Later he was a student in Trinity College, at Port Hope, Ontario, and while in that institution took an active part in athletics, particularly in ice hockey and football. During the World war he joined the Canadian Army and was ready for service, but was not ordered overseas. He then engaged in business as a public accountant and a stock and bond dealer in Winnipeg, to which he devoted his attention until 1925, when he came to Woodland. Here he became associated with H. O. Harrison in the latter’s stock ranch and automobile agency, and when Mr. Harrison closed out his interests in Yolo county Mr. Sutherland was appointed assistant superintendent, under H. O. Cummings, of Woodland Clinic Hospital. He is now assistant secretary of that institution and its financial man, a very important and responsible position, the duties of which he is discharging in a manner that has earned for him the commendation of those who know of his activities and the results obtained.
Mr. Sutherland was united in marriage to Miss Gertrude Woodfield, who is a native of England, and they are the parents of two children, Katheline and James. Mr. Sutherland is fond of golf as a means of recreation and is a member of the Yolo Fliers Club and the Woodland Rotary Club. A man of strong character, pleasing address and earnest purpose, he has won a high place in the esteem of the people of this community and is very popular in the social circles to which he belongs.
