MB, BS (London), MRCS, LRCP, FRCS FRACS, RACSMalcolm came from a medical family. His father, Malcolm (Senior), was also an ear nose and throat surgeon, one brother was a paediatrician and the other is a psychiatrist. Malcolm was born in 1928 and educated at Medbury Preparatory School and at Christs College. After spending a year at Canterbury University he trained in medicine at St Marys Hospital, Paddington, London, qualifying in 1954. While at university he was a prominent athlete representing Canterbury at a Junior (under 19) level. He was NZ Junior High Jump Champion and was awarded a NZ University Blue in 1947. In the UK he represented United Hospitals and the University of London. As a house surgeon at St Marys Hospital he worked for the Senior Surgeon Mr Handfield Jones and for Sir Arthur (later Lord) Porritt. He also worked for the Thoracic Surgery Unit. Malcolm was a house physician at the North Middlesex Hospital for a year gaining experience in general medicine, endocrinology, dermatology, geriatrics and psychiatry. He next worked in orthopaedics as a senior house officer at the Albert Dock Seamens Hospital. In 1956 Malcolm returned to NZ and worked at the Christchurch Hospital as Senior Casualty Officer. He returned to the UK a year later and passed his Primary FRCS (Eng) examination. Uncertain as to what branch of surgery he would like to follow, he applied for and was successful in obtaining a position as a senior house surgeon to the Professional Unit at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital in Greys Inn Road, London. He worked for Henry Shaw who was one of the early head and neck cancer surgeons and who had trained with Dr Hayes Martin at the Memorial Hospital in New York. Also working in this Unit was one of the early facial plastic surgeons who had initially been trained in ENT. Malcolm was delighted to be working with such excellent teachers and felt that this was the direction and the specialty he should be taking. He subsequently worked for 2 years as a registrar in Otolaryngology at University College Hospital. This position also involved working with the plastic unit on head and neck reconstructive procedures. In 1958 Malcolm obtained his FRCS (Eng). For the next 4 years he was Senior Registrar in Otolaryngology at the Royal London Hospital where he did as much head and neck surgery as he could. In particular he gained experience in salivary gland surgery. In 1964 he was appointed Consultant Surgeon to the Department of Otolaryngology at the Christchurch Hospital and in 1970 he passed the FRACS examination. Malcolm began the Head and Neck Oncology Clinic in conjunction with the Radiotherapy Department in 1971. When surgery was indicated, he carried this out doing his own reconstructions. In the same year he became a member of the British Society of Head and Neck Oncologists and was later a Foundation member of the Head and Neck Section of the Australasian College of Surgeons. In the pursuit of excellence Malcolm travelled widely overseas to North America and to Europe visiting head and neck clinics and in addition attended courses on rhinoplasty, otoplasty and endoscopic sinus surgery. He presented papers at almost every NZ and Australian Otolaryngological Conference and at the Royal Australian College of Surgeons General Scientific Meetings over a period of 25 years. He was frequently on the panel when head and neck cancer topics were discussed. In July 1984 at an International Conference on Head and Neck Cancer in Baltimore, USA, Malcolm presented a paper on a cNew Technique of Pharyngeal Reconstructiond. In 1986 at a Royal Australasian College of Surgeons sponsored Conference entitled cHead and Neck Updated, he presented a paper on cIdentification of the Facial Nerve in Parotid Surgery.d He had 30 papers on all aspects of the specialty published in international journals. In 1970 Malcolm was awarded a Gold Medal of the British Medical Association for his role as Medical Adviser to the film cA Deaf Child in the Family,d which was produced by the NZ National Film Unit. Head of the Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery at Christchurch Hospital from 1988-1992, Malcolm was also President of the New Zealand Society of Otolaryngologists and Head and Neck Surgeons from 19871989. He was a member of the Court of Examiners of the Royal Australasian College in his specialty for several years. He also was a specialist representative on the Medical Advisory Committee of the Christchurch Hospital for a number of years. He retired from the staff of the Christchurch Hospital in 1995 but continued in private practice until 1997. In retirement Malcolm spent many months of the year with his wife Elizabeth at the beloved Golden Bay property, where gardening, sea fishing and trout fishing and reading occupied his time. He wrote a biography of his mother, the artist Dorothy Robertson, and was completing an autobiography of his years in medicine. Malcolm also enjoyed travelling to Australia, Europe and Asia. Malcolm was a devoted father. He had three children, Ian, Stuart and Julie, by his first marriage. He and his wife, Elizabeth, had two children together, Jane and William. He was also the proud grandfather of Hamish and Anna. Malcolm is survived by his wife and loving family. This obituary was written by the family according to Malcolm's CV.
