Title
Quintessential Canadian Anaesthetist, Wesley Bourne: A Retrospective on the Foundation of McGill Anesthesia
Abstract
A biography of Wesley Bourne (1886-1965), the founding chair in 1945 of the Department of Anesthesia at McGill University. Along with Montreal anaesthetists Harold Griffith and Digby Leigh, Bourne dominated much of the field of anaesthesia during the 1940s. During the Second World War, the three started training programs for the armed forces, which developed into an anaesthesia course after the war. McGill University developed the first autonomous Department of Anesthesia in Canada.
