Albert Chisholm Harvey

Specialist in internal medicine Concordia and Misericordia Health Centres, Winnipeg (b Whitehills, Banffshire, 1938; q Edinburgh 1963), died suddenly on 15 August 2000. After completing his training in Edinburgh as a general physician with a special interest in cardiology, Al moved his family to Canada in 1969, joining the Winnipeg Clinic as a specialist in internal medicine. He was an active member of the Health Sciences Centre, the Concordia Hospital, and the Misericordia Health Centre, where from 1966 to 1999, he was head of the department of medicine, and received the meritorious service award in 1999. It was typical of Al's generosity of spirit that he was also associated for many years with the Northern Medical Unit, which provides medical care for people on reservations. Fit, healthy, and full of energy, Al was a keen sportsman. He leaves a wife, Carol; two children; and one grandchild.
