Hugh was also active in teaching at the University of Manitoba and served as president of the Winnipeg Children’s Hospital.” A former patient recalled: “I still remember how he was able to make the first shots I had quick and painless by making me count backwards as fast as I could. During my countdown he stuck me with the needle, and I didn’t even notice. No one could ask for a better doctor.”
