"In 1960 he was appointed acting director of the renal division at Barnes Hospital, St. Louis, Missouri, where he carried out the first successful use of hemodialysis in that city, saving the life of a 9-year-old. Appointed in 1961 to the Department of Medicine, Queen's University, he established the renal program and the nephrology division, opening the first renal unit at Kingston General Hospital in 1967. Dr. Morrin retired in 1995, by which time the specialty of nephrology had progressed from when kidney failure meant death, to the existence of renal replacement therapy. Dr. Morrin is survived by his wife Mariella, sons Peter, Hugh and Robin, 6 grandchildren, sister Alice and brother Francis. Queen's University established The Dr. Peter Morrin Academic Fund to recognize his 35 years of service. A memorial website has been created by his son, Hugh: www.magma.ca/~morrin."
