Born at Dundee, Scotland on 4 July 1921, he received a medical degree from the University of St. Andrews. In 1953, he came to Winnipeg for a residency in pediatric medicine at the Children’s Hospital, where he worked with Bruce Chown and Harry Medovy on the treatment of rH disease in newborn babies. He went on to spend 50 years as a pediatrician at the Children’s Hospital, Shriner’s Hospital, and St. Boniface Hospital, where he was Chief of Pediatrics until retirement at the age of 85. In 2010, he was inducted into the Order of Manitoba for his “exceptional contribution to northern health care, particularly among the Aboriginal and Inuit children of northern Manitoba and Nunavut.” He died at Winnipeg on 30 April 2015.
