Name of creator
Harry Oxorn was a 1945 graduate of Dalhousie Medical School. Born in 1920, he completed post-graduate studies at Yale and McGill before moving to Ottawa, where he ended up heading the departments of obstetrics and gynaecology at the Reddy Memorial and the Ottawa Civic Hospitals. He was professor emeritus at the University of Ottawa, and also taught at McGill University and Hong Kong University. In 1994 he received the President's Award from the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada, and in 2003 he was appointed as a Member of the Order of Canada. His textbook Human Labor and Birth, first published in 1964, is considered one of the most comprehensive books of its kind. He died in 2008.
Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives by Barbara Blauvelt, Medical Alumni Association, in accession (20-92) in 1992.
