As President of the Australian Medical Association Queensland, Queensland Freemason and columnist for our quarterly magazine, Dr Bill Boyd had a chance meeting.
“I had the privilege of meeting Dr Wylie Gibbons and his wife Erica at a special presentation,” he said. The AMA Queensland presented Dr Gibbons with a bound copy of his impressive scientific work on Gastric hypothermia as a treatment for catastrophic bleeding.
“It happened that Dr Gibbons mentioned Freemasonry in passing and after that we got on extremely well indeed.”
Dr Gibbons wore a Royal Order of Scotland lapel pin. He celebrated his 90th birthday in January.
