Sir Thomas Roddick: His Work in Medicine and Public Life
Abstract
The biography of Thomas George Roddick (1846-1923), student, surgeon, and later teacher and administrator at McGill University. Roddick was also prominent in Montreal's high society at the turn of the twentieth century. He was appointed a surgeon at the Montreal General Hospital in 1874, and appointed professor of clinical surgery at McGill in 1875 at age 28. As a surgeon he championed John Lister's antiseptic methods in Canadian hospitals, and was instrumental, as a Conservative Member of Parliament from 1896 to 1904, in reforming and standardizing medical education throughout the country. Roddick also served as deputy surgeon general to the Canadian militia during the Riel Rebellion of 1885.
