Although Peter began a general medical practice in Vancouver, he later specialized in orthopedic surgery. He became the chief of the medical staff and he was the head of the surgical department at Vancouver General Hospital.

In 1913 he became a member of the council of the College of Physicians and Surgeons. In 1940 he was the president of the council. He was also British Columbia’s representative on the council of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada. In 1939 he became the president of the Medical Council of Canada.

In September 1914, Peter’s car was involved in an accident on the Granville Street when he swerved to avoid colliding with a street car. His car collided with two other cars on the bridge. No one was hurt.

In April 1921, Peter was the host for guests from Seattle, who were in Vancouver to play golf. One of the guests, Harry Harlan Stewart, mistakenly opened a door that led to the basement of the house, and died when he fell down the stairs.

In June 1924, Peter sued another doctor for libel, after the other doctor had written to the Workmen’s Compensation Board, criticizing Peter’s medical opinions about a proposed operation on an injured worker. The outcome of the case is not currently available.

In 1948, doctors from the Pacific Northwest honored Peter as he celebrated 50 years of practice as a surgeon.

He retired about 1950, and he worked on a book of memoirs, which remained unfinished.

Peter died in Vancouver on December 18, 1963. He was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Jean died in West Vancouver, British Columbia, on October 3, 1966. She was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Burnaby.

“Fractures Skull in Fatal Fall; H.H. Stewart of Seattle Dies at Home of Dr. P.A. McLennan, Vancouver Province, April 18, 1921, page 2:

“Death came suddenly to H.H. Stewart of Seattle early on Sunday morning, when, mistaking a door leading to the basement of the home of Dr. A.P. [sic] McLennan, 969 Jervis street, for one leading to another room, he plunged headfirst down the stairway, sustaining a fracture of the skull.

According to a report made to the police, Mr. Stewart, who is the secretary of the Carnation Milk Company, in company with Mr. Stebbs, also of that concern, and Messrs. Edwards and Tanner, Seattle lawyers, came to Vancouver on Saturday with the intention of playing golf on Sunday. They were the guests of Dr. McLennan, and about 2 a.m. Sunday, while they sat discussing the plans for the day, Mr. Stewart went out of the room. As he did not return in a few minutes, Dr. McLennan went to investigate, and found the door leading to the basement open.

Switching on the lights, the members of the party were horrified to find Mr. Stewart lying dead at the foot of the steps. The police and Coroner Jeffs were immediately notified and the body removed to the city morgue, where an inquest will be held.

The unfortunate victim of the tragedy is survived by a wife and three children, who are at present in California.”
