History

A la suite d’une invitation lancée par l’Abbé Arthur Maheux, quatorze personnes se rencontrèrent à l’Institut d’histoire et de géographie de l’Université Laval le 24 octobre 1950 pour créer la Société canadienne d’histoire de la médecine (SCHM). Parmi ces personnes, on retrouvait des médecins, des historiens, des archivistes et des membres de communautés religieuses. Le Dr Sylvio Leblond (1901-1990), qui enseignait alors l’histoire de la médecine à l’Université Laval, fut élu premier président de la Société. Il conserva ce poste jusque en décembre 1951, moment où il quitta Québec pour Chicoutimi. On 24 October 1950, fourteen people met at the invitation of the abbé Arthur Maheux in the Institut d’Histoire et de Géographie, of the Université Laval in Quebec City to form the Société Canadienne d’histoire de la médecine (SCHM). Among them were physicians, historians, and archivists. Dr. Sylvio Leblond (1901-1990), internist and instructor of medical history at Laval, was elected president and served in this capacity until he moved to Chicoutimi in December 1951. Lire la suite
