In December 1917, two ships collided in the harbor of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The SS Mont-Blanc carried a cargo of high explosives, and a fire on board led to a massive explosion that destroyed Halifax's Richmond neighborhood, killed 1,782 people, and injured 9,000 more. Dr. T. Jock Murray will present "The Medical Response to the Halifax Explosion," which was the largest human-made explosion up to that time.
Dr. Murray is the former Dean of the Dalhousie University School of Medicine, an eminent neurologist and medical historian known for clinical and historical work on multiple sclerosis, and a member of the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, among other honors. The MHSNJ is honored to host his presentation.
