In Memory of Dr. John C. Beck

It is with great regret that I inform the endocrine and diabetes community of the death of Dr. John C. Beck. We offer our sincere condolences to his students, colleagues, friends and families.

Dr. Connie Chik
CSEM President


Dr. John Beck

Dr. John Beck was a founding father of endocrinology in Canada when he began his career at McGill University. He was appointed Physician-in-Chief at the Royal Victoria Hospital and was eventually Chairman of the Department of Medicine at McGill University. He was the first Secretary-General of the International Society of Endocrinology. CSEM was created in order to be able to be part of ISE, as per our history written by Dr. Dave Hanley.

Dr. Beck was instrumental in organizing the first International Congress of Endocrinology in Copenhagen in 1960, which ultimately led to the formation of the International Society of Endocrinology. Dr. Beck was elected Secretary-General, a role he played until 1976. He was responsible for the organization of international congresses of endocrinology and the development of a companion organization, the International Society of Neuroendocrinology (now the International Neuroendocrine Federation).
