Biographical history

Frank Campbell MacIntosh was born in Baddeck, Nova Scotia. He completed both his BA (1930) and MA (1932) at Dalhousie University. In 1933, Dr. MacIntosh joined the laboratory of Boris P. Babkin at the Department of Physiology of McGill University. McGill awarded Dr. MacIntosh his Ph.D. in 1937, the Royal Society of Canada awarded him a traveling fellowship and he went to London to work under Sir Henry Dale at the National Institute of Medical Research. He was appointed to the Institute staff in 1938 and remained there until 1949. That same year, he returned to Canada to become Joseph Morley Drake Professor and Chair of the Department of Physiology at McGill University. Dr. MacIntosh retired from full-time service to McGill in 1978, but as Professor Emeritus, his association continued. ("Progress in Brain Research" 98: xv-xvi, 1993)
