Born in 1883 to George and Phoebe Rowntree who owned a grocery store here in our very own London, Ontario, Leonard G. Rowntree graduated from Western’s medical school in 1905, winning the gold medal. He afterwards interned at Victoria Hospital. Following World War I, Rowntree joined the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota as a professor, becoming known as the person most responsible for establishing their research tradition. In 1933, Rowntree went on to publish early research using cortical hormones in successfully treating Addison’s disease.
