Name of creator
Ted Aaron was born in 1918 in Edmonton to Abe Aaron, a fur trader from Lithuania, and Julia Grausbord of Oxbow, Saskatchewan. Ted obtained his BSc and MD degrees from the University of Alberta, and left to study in the United States, where he specialized in allergy research at Roosevelt and Mt. Sinai Hospitals in New York, and was later awarded a fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh. He was the first Jewish doctor hired in Boston at the Lahey clinic. He later returned to Edmonton as the first allergist in Western Canada and became a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Alberta. He published over 50 professional papers and wrote three chapters in Medical texts. He was selected as one of the 100 Physicians of the Century by the Alberta Medical Association in 2005. In addition to his professional activities, he served on the Board of the Beth Shalom Synagogue, the Alberta Boy Scout Association, the Edmonton Symphony, was President of the Alberta Ballet, and President of the Association of Christians and Jews.
