The John Austin Society
John 'Blimey' Austin

The John Austin Society for the history of medicine and related sciences welcomes all members of the Queen's and Kingston community. Named after Lorimer John "Blimey" Austin, who was Professor of Surgery at Queen's from 1926-1945, the purpose of the Society is to promote an interest in the history of medicine, medical science and allied professions by providing opportunities for fellowship and continuing education, and by encouraging and fostering research by its members. To this end, we meet several times a year for presentations by members or guests on topics of medical or scientific interest - broadly interpreted. We hope you will find our slate of speakers and topics interesting and enlightening, and will join us as often as you wish. You may bring guests along as well.
