Biography of Robert Earl Beamish

Robert Earl Beamish was born on September 16, 1916 in Shoal Lake, Manitoba toWilliam Henry & Mary May (McLeod) Beamish. He was educated at the Shoal Lake Public School and McConnell High School before entering Brandon College in 1934. He graduated as honour student and class valedictorian with a B.A. in 1937. The recipient of a Dominion-Provincial Scholarship, he entered the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba. In 1942, he graduated with an M.D. and two years later a B.Sc. (Med). In 1942 he joined the teaching staff of the University of Manitoba an affiliation that would last for the rest of his life. In 1943, he married Mary Kathleen Weekes, the couple would have three daughters Catherine born in 1949, Judith in 1953 and Mary Anne in 1955.

Beamish served in Canada with the Royal Canadian Military Corps from 1944-1946 retiring with the rank of Captain. During his military service, Beamish began a prolific research career with the co-authoring of four articles. One was a study of Tuberculosis in the Canadian Army. From 1947-1948 Beamish was awarded a Nuffield Dominion Travelling Fellowship to study in Great Britian. He studied at the Royal Hammersmith Hospital in London and later became the registrar at the National Heart Hospital. While in England, he obtained membership in the Royal College of Physicians of London and with a speciality in cardiology to the Royal College of Edinburgh. He was later advanced to Fellowship in both organizations.

Upon returning to Canada, Beamish began his efforts to have the study and treatment of heart disease established as a legitimate field of medical specialty in Canada. He established the department of cardiology at the Manitoba Clinic, that grew to include six members. At the time atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries was viewed as an inevitable result of the aging process and not a specific disease with causes and risk factors. Beamish pioneered the notion that by lowering serum cholesterol the risk of heart disease was greatly diminished. He was a proponent of anticoagulants and the elimination of fatty from the diet in the 1950s, a practise now deemed common place was considered radical at the time. Beamish qualified as FRCP, FACP & FACC while serving at the Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre and the Manitoba Clinic. In 1970 he joined the Great West Life Assurance Co. becoming a Vice President Underwriting and Medical while still retaining teaching and research interests at the University.

Dr. Beamish was a Founding Director of the Manitoba Heart Foundation and served on its Medical Committee for over thirty years and chaired the Medical Advisory Committee of the Heart of the Heart and Stroke Foundation from 1970-1972. He was the President of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society from 1968-1970. He served as both President of the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Manitoba from 1960-1961 and was President of the Manitoba Medical Association from 1970-1971.

Dr. Beamish did not limit his activities to the realm of medicine. He was President of the United Nations Association of Canada from 1982-1984. He was also a board member of the Canadian Association for the Club of Rome, the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the United Way of Winnipeg and was the first president of the Friends of the Libraries, at the University of Winnipeg. In 1974 upon the occasion of Winnipeg’s Centennial, he chaired and organized a Symposium on the Dilemnas of Modern Man. He was the first President of the Brandon University Foundation from 1980-1987, sat on the Board of Governors of the University of Manitoba from 1981-1984 and was on the board of the Manitoba Medical College Foundation, Health Sciences Centre Foundation and the Paraplegia Foundation.

Dr. Beamish had a long association with the St. Boniface General Hospital Research Centre in the Cardiovascular Sciences Section with Dr. Narjan Dhalla. He was the first editor of the Canadian Journal of Cardiology from 1984-1996 becoming Founding Editor in 1997. He was the Editor of Rhythmology from 1987-1995. In 1999 he co-authored Manitoba Medicine: A Brief History with Dr. Ian Carr. He was the recipient of many awards during his illustrious career including: Honary Dr. of Sciences from Brandon University in 1988 and the University of Manitoba in 1989, the Order of Canada in 1990 and the Order of Manitoba in 2000. In receiving the Health Sciences Centre Foundation’s Laureate of Excellence Awrd in 1994, Beamish stated that his internationally recognized work with anticoagulants in the 1960s and his groundbreaking work with lowering cholesterol and eliminating fatty foods from the diet to reduce heart disease provided him with his greatest professional satisfaction. Robert Earl Beamish died February 17, 2001.
