Docteur Gustave Beaudet (1886-1968) is seen here in front of his house in the Trait-Carré of Charlesbourg.

This street in the Charlesbourg district of Quebec City was named in honour of Dr. Gustave Beaudet (1886-1968), who was born in Deschaillons-sur-Saint-Laurent. He studied medicine at Université Laval, then at Université de Montréal. When he finished his studies in 1910, he married Marie-Thérèse Larue and settled in Saint-Apollinaire (Chaudière-Appalaches).
