In 1953 he was appointed director of the Victoria and Island Chest Clinic, a position he held until his retirement in 1982. Wartime conditions saw Bob and his classmates entering medical school without completing a bachelor’s degree. He corrected this by returning to the University of Victoria (successor to Victoria College) and completing 2 BAs.”
