Abbott, one of Canada’s earliest female medical graduates, an expert on congenital heart disease. She received her M.D., C.M. from Bishop's University in 1894 and was the only woman in her class. “In the Foreword to this book, the eminent cardiologist, Paul D. White, stated that 'it was left to Maude Abbott, fired by a spark from Osler, to make the subject one of such general and widespread interest that we no longer regard it with either disdain or awe as a mystery for the autopsy table alone to discover and to solve. She has been the most important of the pioneers in establishing congenital heart disease as a living part of clinical medicine.' Abbott, refused admission to the medical school of McGill University in Montreal, received her medical degree from Bishop's College. Abbott eventually was appointed to the McGill medical faculty and was later appointed curator of the McGill Medical Historical Museum. A skilled physician and pathologist, she utilized her broad clinical experience and exposure to the wide range of specimens at the museum to prepare this book on cardiac anomalies. Well illustrated with twenty-five detailed plates, it has become a classic in its field.” – Heirs of Hippocrates 2276. . . First Edition.

He did postdoctoral work in neurology and neuropathology in the Charcot Clinic in Paris and at the University of Rome. In 1929 he returned to Prague where he practiced neuropsychiatry and began research in the Department of Histology, German University. In September 1939 the Nazi occupation forced the Altschuls to flee to Canada. The Altschuls were aboard the S.S. Athenia, the first Allied ship to be torpedoed in World War II. They survived, but lost all their possessions and scientific records. In SASKATOON, Rudolph Altschul became an instructor in Anatomy at the University of Saskatchewan, and soon established himself as a dedicated researcher and a teacher regarded with trust and affection by his students. He became Professor and, in 1955, Head of the Department of Anatomy. He resumed his study of cellular reactions in atherosclerotic blood vessels, and eventually proposed the niacin therapy for hypercholesterolemia and hyperlipemia. Altschul published on a wide variety of topics, including three books: Selected Studies on Arteriosclerosis (1950), Endothelium (1954), and Niacin in Vascular Disorders and Hyperlipemia (1964, posthumously).” – Sergey Fedoroff, within: Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan. . 2
