Name of creator
Luther Burns MacKenzie was born in West River, Pictou County, in May 1880 and moved to Bedford at the age of two. He earned his BA from Dalhousie University in 1900 and an MD from New York University in 1904, after which he established a private medical practice in New York City. In 1920, he joined the Faculty of Medicine at New York University. MacKenzie played a significant role in the expansion and development of the Bellevue-New York University Medicine Centre. In 1947 he was awarded the NYU Alumni Meritorious Service Medal and was made Professor Emeritus of Clinical Medicine in 1951. He was appointed to the NYU Board of Governors and awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws in 1957. Dalhousie bestowed this same distinction in 1980, conferred on his 100th birthday. Dr. MacKenzie died in August 1981.
Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives by Dr. Luther MacKenzie in accession (60-80) in 1980 and by Eleanor Graves, daughter of Dr. MacKenzie, in accessions (76-81) and (81-81) in 1981.
