Scope and content
Professor le Riche joined the University in 1957 and served as head of Department of Epidemiology and Biometrics in the School of Hygiene from 1962-1975. With the dissolution of the School of Hygiene, he became a professor in the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biostatistics in the Faculty of Medicine. He retained that status until his retirement in 1982, when he was appointed Professor Emeritus.
The records in this series document Professor le Riche’s employment at and retirement from the University, along with some of his teaching and administrative activities. The series includes, among others, files relating to teaching of tropical medicine and epidemiology, the proceedings of a review committee on community health (1979-1980), a preliminary report on epidemiology prepared by the Research Advisory Committee working group on epidemiological studies (1984), correspondence with and about Dr. Andrew Rhodes, Director of School of Hygiene (1966-69), Faculty of Medicine committees generally (1957-1961), and admission criteria for medical students. There is also a file on the W. Harding le Riche Award in Medical Research at the University of Toronto.
