Biographical history

Born in 1903 [Halifax, Nova Scotia?], Dr. Beckwith received his medical training at Dalhousie University and postgraduate training in Montreal and Toronto. His decision to pursue a career in internal medicine and chest diseases was largely due to being ill with tuberculous during his training in Toronto. In 1937, he developed a health unit in Cape Breton, the first of its kind in Nova Scotia. He returned to Halifax after nine years in Cape Breton and became Superintendent of the Halifax Tuberculosis Hospital and a member of the staff at Dalhousie University's Faculty of Medicine, Department of Preventative Medicine. In 1951 he was made Associate Professor of Medicine. In 1956 he became Executive Secretary (full-time) of the MSNS of Nova Scotia. In 1968, he retired, but remained a consultant until his death in 1973. During his career he was president of the Nova Scotia Tuberculosis Association, the Canadian Tuberculosis Association, and the Nova Scotia Rehabilitation Council.
