Founded in 1934 as a small community hospital – open to all patients, regard- less of race, religion, language, or ethnic background – Montreal’s Jewish General has grown to become an internationally recognized facility, and a major component of McGill University’s medical school. This comprehensive account of an esteemed institution begins by outlining the historical connections between Judaism and medicine, and the establish- ment of Jewish hospitals throughout the Western world at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries. Specifically Jewish hos- pitals originated in response to the prevalent anti-Semitism that made post- graduate training for Jewish physicians in hospitals nearly impossible and also due to the need for kosher facilities for patients. Doctor Frank Guttman, who trained at the Jewish General from 1959 to 1964 and joined its staff in 1965, provides a detailed account of the hospital’s history and its various di- rectors, tracking the progress and medical breakthroughs of each department and presenting the exceptional clinicians and scientists who have made the hospital’s progress possible. This book tells the story of Montreal’s Jewish General, from humble begin- nings to a world-class university hospital, committed to service, teaching, re- search, and innovation. Frank Myron Guttman is a retired professor of pediatric surgery and former chief of general pediatric surgery at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Football at Queen’s University has one of the richest and longest histories of any sport in Canada. The Golden Gaels have been a presence in Canadian football at both the amateur and professional levels since 1882. Gael Force traces this history, chronicling the team’s ups and downs and integrating them within the history of the university, the country, and the sport in general. Providing a wealth of interesting facts and engaging anecdotes as well as profiles and photographs of the coaches, captains, and players, Merv Daub takes the reader through more than a century of Queen’s football. Drawing from a wealth of sources, Daub recounts the team’s key milestones including their first Dominion championship in 1893 with “Curtis and his boys,” three consecutive Grey Cup wins in the 1920s, the 1934–35 victory of the “Fearless Fourteen,” the 1955 season when Gus Braccia, Ronnie Stewart, Gary Schrei- der, Lou Bruce, Al Kocman, “Jocko” Thompson, and the rest of that “band of merry men” brought Queen’s back into the limelight, the golden years of the 1960s, and the 1978 and 1992 Vanier Cup championship seasons. Adding twenty more years of football history since Gael Force was first published in 1996, this new edition includes the 2016 season played at the re- vitalized Richardson Stadium. It is both a tribute to a long-standing football legacy at Queen’s and an important historical and sociological study of college sport in Canada. “They’re the Montreal Canadians, the New York Yankees, the Boston Celtics of Canadian college football. And they’re the team other teams love to beat.” Globe and Mail Merv Daub is a retired professor in the School of Business at Queen’s Univer- sity. He was co-captain of the Golden Gaels in 1965 and coached the team in the 1970s and in 1991. 4 0 M Q U P S P R I N G 2 0 1 8 Q U E B E C H I S T O R Y • M E D I C A L H I S T O R Y S P O R T S H I S T O R Y • C A N A D I A N H I S T O R Y S P E C I F I C AT I O N S Published for the Jewish General Hospital Foundation April 2018 978-0-7735-5306-4 $65.00A CDN, $65.00S US, £54.00 cloth 6.5 x 9.5 352pp 85 illustrations, colour section eBook available S P E C I F I C AT I O N S April 2018 978-0-7735-5303-3 $34.95T CDN, $34.95A US, £28.99 paper 6.25 x 9.25 360pp 53 illustrations eBook available The Sir Mortimer B.
