Name of creator
Benjamin Royer was a physician and researcher in public health, and taught in Dalhousie's Faculty of Medicine from 1919-1923. He born near Middleburg, Pennsylvania, on 13 December 1870 and graduated from Jefferson Medical College in 1899, with a residency at the Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia from 1899-1900. He worked at Jefferson Hospital (1902-1903), the Contagious Disease Hospital (1903-1908), the [Pennsylvania] State Department of Health (1908-1919, 1947-1948), and the Halifax Health Commission in Massachusetts (1919-1923), which is when he made his connection with Dalhousie. From 1919-1921 he lectured in medical jurisprudence at Dalhousie, and from 1920-1923 he was the director of the Public Health Course for Nurses. He returned to the United States in 1924 to take up a position at the American Child Health Association, then the National Society for the Prevention of Blindness (1926-1932), the State Emergency Child Health Committee (1933-1938), and the State Sanatorium at Cresson (1943-1947). Dr. Royer died on 16 February 1961 in Greencastle, Pennsylvania.
