JJR Macleod Special Issue of CJHH

CJHH special issue

I am very pleased to announce that the JJR Macleod special issue of Canadian Journal of Health History (Volume 40, issue 2) is now live on the UTP journals site. It is available via Open Access, thanks to a generous grant from AMS Healthcare. I co-edited this issue with Christopher Rutty and James Wright and wrote its introduction. The issue includes articles by Kenneth McHardy, Edwin Gale, Christopher Rutty, and James Wright.

These articles explore the life and career of Macleod, a scientist whose accomplishments have received relatively little attention and whose role in the discovery of insulin continues to be misunderstood.
