The Meds 1961 Jack & Beryl Kerr Bursary

Established by members of Meds 1961 on the occasion of their 40th reunion and in honour of Jack Kerr, M.D. 1953, Honorary Class President for the Class of Medicine 1961.

When Meds 1961 began its Anatomy Course in the autumn of 1957, a then young Surgical Resident was a major demonstrator, Dr. Jack Kerr. The next year he went on staff as a General Surgeon with KGH and on the Faculty. Over the next 3 years he kept in touch with our class and mentored us all through "thick & thin". He had his whole career at KGH, was physician to the Golden Gaels football team, and the honorary president of our class; he and his wife Berle welcomed us back at every reunion. He remained devoted to teaching students and as of 2006 still lives in Kingston. A good man, fine teacher and devoted surgeon!
