Atlee Endowment Fund

A legacy of research support

Dr. Harold Benge Atlee joined the newly formed joint Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Dalhousie University in 1923, serving for 35 years as the department’s first professor and head. Dr. Atlee was a pioneer and leader in his field, and a staunch advocate for obstetrics and gynaecology practice, education and care in the Maritimes.

After his death in 1978, Dr. Atlee’s dedication to the education and research of future health professionals and to the health and well-being of Nova Scotian women and their babies continued thanks to a generous bequest from his estate. This bequest led to the establishment of an endowment to support research projects requiring financial aid within the Dalhousie Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. 

Applications for funding up to $7,500 may be made to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Research Committee.  Please contact the Administrative Research Coordinator for the most up to date application form and description.
