Peter Herdson

Professor Peter Barrie Herdson was the Professor and Director of Pathology at ACT Pathology, The Canberra Hospital from 1991 until 2000. He died on 27 June 2004 in Auckland at the age of 71 years as a result of mesothelioma.

Peter Herdson was a natural leader, an enthusiastic teacher, a wise counsellor, a visionary planner and a caring colleague.  Peter loved life, and lived it fully.  He was an entertaining speaker, with an infectious laugh. At dinners he never had a shortage of stories from his life in Chicago, New Zealand and Saudi Arabia.

Peter contributed much to the Canberra medical community. He was involved in many ACT Health and Canberra Hospital committees. He was also involved in various activities in the Canberra Clinical School, University of Sydney and the Canberra Region Postgraduate Committee in Medicine.
