Frederick Banting was born on 14 November 1891, in the downstairs front bedroom of a farm house near Alliston, Ontario. He was the youngest of five children of William Thompson Banting and Margaret (née Grant). Educated at the Public and High Schools at Alliston. He attempted to enter the army but was refused due to poor eyesight. He later went to the University of Toronto to study divinity, but soon transferred to the study of medicine.
