Dr. Hoodless at the CMS
« on: April 06, 2013, 06:05:29 PM »

I found this photo of Dr. Hoodless taken with his students in 1937.

The web site this photo was found at includes a link to an article titled "Misi Utu: Dr D.W. Hoodless and the development of medical education in the South Pacific. Margaret W. Guthrie. With a history of the graduates of the Suva Medical, Central Medical, and Fiji School of Medicine. 1979, reprtd 1980. 70p-illus. Publisher: Institute of Pacific Studies, University of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji."

Misi Utu is a short biography by Hoodless' daughter, Margaret.  It's available online.  He was a great man.

Perhaps this has been covered somewhere in the vast expanses of the Tighar web site, but in case it hasn’t, here is a link to a memoir that includes a brief account of a meeting with Dr. Hoodless, of the bones measurements fame.

The author died not too long ago.  It's a shame the opportunity to reach out to him was missed.


* a book description, which I think is by the author himself:   “A collection of vignettes some humorous, some sad. But all are true. Well, perhaps embellished. They relate the author's experiences as a medical student, intern, World War II Naval Medical Officer, and more than fifty years as an orthopaedic surgeon.”
