"An accomplished academic, clinician and medical administrator, Iain was emeritus professor at McMaster University and former head of laboratories and chief of staff at the Hamilton General Hospital. He was also chair of the board at Hamilton Civic Hospitals, where he facilitated the merger with Chedoke-McMaster Hospitals and the establishment of Hamilton Health Sciences. Perhaps most of all, Iain was a passionate Scotsman. His love for Scotland and pride for his heritage never waned."
