Lorris Elijah Borden (1877 - 1963) was a surgeon and political figure in British Columbia. He represented Nelson in the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia from 1928 to 1933 as a Conservative. Borden took part in a Canadian government expedition to the Arctic in 1903. During that time, he studied diseases among the Inuit, and collected a number of carvings and other artifacts which were donated to the government by his wife after his death. Borden also served as a major in the Canadian Army Medical Corps.
