Name of creator
Dr. James William Pearce was born in 1924 in Northern Alberta, Canada. He obtained M.D. and C.M, from Queen’s University in 1947. Following his time at Queen’s he spent some time doing clinical medicine before beginning his studies at Magdalen College, Oxford in the United Kingdom. It was at Oxford that he received his qualifications in physiology.
Pearce returned to Canada to work in the Department of Physiology at the University of Western Ontario from 1952 to1955. From there he moved to the University of Alberta to become both a professor and the head of the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, until it became the Department of Physiology in 1961. Pearce resigned from the U of A in 1965. From 1965-1966 Pearce was a visiting scientist at the A.R.C. Institute of Animal Physiology in Babraham, England. He then became a professor at the University of Toronto in Ontario. Pearce passed away in a traffic accident at the age of 51.
