Dr. Squires (1934 to 2011) was one of the founders of the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME). He was a mentor to hundreds of editors and was well known in our association for his kindness, warmth, humour, and wise counsel. He gave generously of his time and helped attract many members to WAME who shared his vision that our association is a collaborative group. Dr. Squires was the Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian Medical Association Journal from 1987 to 1996. He had an international reputation as an expert on medical publishing, yet was always humble. During his tenure, he was dedicated to high-quality medical journal publishing and was innovative in his approaches as to how to achieve it.
