Flags on campus are lowered in memory of Dr. Robert Hudson, medical doctor and professor in the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Queen’s University.

Dr. Hudson completed Pre-Meds and Medical School at the University of Toronto and earned his Ph.D. in 1974. He completed his post-doctoral training in Australia and came to Queen's University in 1983, at the behest of an admired colleague, Dr. Charles Bird, and eventually became full professor of Medicine. He had appointments at Kingston General Hospital and Hotel Dieu Hospital.

Nationally and internationally renowned for his medical research in the areas of male fertility, varicoceles, prostatic cancer, pituitary tumors, hirsutism, andropause, obesity and insulin resistance, Dr. Hudson was awarded 39 research grants and he was author or co-author of 217 scientific papers, abstracts and presentations. He was supervisor or co-supervisor for five endocrinology training residents, for five summer students and for twenty MSc/PhD students in the School of Physical & Health Education.

Dr. Hudson was a long time consultant for the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (formerly the Canadian Centre for Drug Free Sport) and was privileged to provide advice on numerous Olympic and other athletic events.

Visitations will be held at the James Reid Funeral Home on Friday, July 19, from 7 - 9 pm, and on Saturday, July 20 from 12:30 to 2:30 pm. The service will be held following the latter visitation, at 3 pm. Reverend Nadene Grieve-Deslippe will officiate. Bob's ashes will be interred in the Cataraqui Cemetery at a later date.
