Biographical history

Louis Horlick was born in Montreal on 2 December 1920. He attended McGill University receiving a B.Sc in 1944, M.D. C.M. in 1945 and a M.Sc in Experimental Medicine in 1953. Dr. Horlick came to the University of Saskatchewan in 1954 as a Lecturer in Medicine and Biochemistry rising through the ranks to become full professor (Medicine and Cardiology) in 1962. He served as acting head of the Department of Medicine first in 1967 and again in 1979-1980 and was the head from 1968 to 1974. Between 1983 and 1989 he served on the U of S Board of Governors. Dr. Horlick retired in 1989 and was named Professor Emeritus. In addition to his academic posts at the U of S, he was on staff at the Royal University Hospital and an attending physician at City Hospital. Dr. Horlick has authored more than sixty scholarly papers, primarily in the fields of lipids and lipoproteins in atherosclerosis, the modification of risk factors in coronary heart disease and clinical gerontology. Among the many honours given to Dr. Horlick was the Saskatchewan Order of Merit in 1991 which recognized his efforts to establish a 9-1-1 emergency system in Saskatoon and the more than 25 years of voluntary work with the Saskatchewan Heart Foundation. Four years later he received the Order of Canada.
