In 1948 he opened an office for general practice in his hometown of Campbellford, Ont. However, after 4 years of solo practice his war-related tuberculosis became active again, and he was admitted to Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto for treatment and recovery. Seeking a branch of medicine in which he could have regular hours, he returned to U of T for a year to get his diploma in public health. His first assignment was with the Simcoe County Health Unit, working out of Orillia, Ont., for 8 years.  He then served as medical officer of health in Peterborough, Ont., for 4 years. In 1966 he shifted direction, serving as editor of the Canadian Medical Association Journal until 1975. He lived a remarkable life that was bookended by global pandemics.”
