Biographical history

Andrew A. Bruère was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and received his medical training at the University of Edinburgh. He earned his M.B., Ch.B. in 1887, and proceeded to post-graduate study in Paris. He returned to Edinburgh to take his M.D. in 1890.

He was director of laboratories (1899-1912) and bacteriologist (1899-1930) at Royal Victory Hospital. In 1906, Bruère joined McGill's Medical Faculty as lecturer in clinical medicine, a post he held until 1915. From 1916 until 1920, he was lecturer in bacteriology, and from 1920 until 1930 Assistant Professor. Bruère lectured in dermatology from 1931 to 1936.
