History Biographical
Mendel (Emmanuel) Pearlman (b.1881 – d.1961) arrived in Canada from Russia at about age 16 with his father in 1898. He travelled on Lake Ontario and settled at Port Arthur (now Thunder Bay) in 1901. By 1909 he was prosperous enough to ask for the hand of Rose Mirsky (b.1888 – d.1982), daughter of Reverend Jacob Mirsky, first spiritual leader of the Jewish community in Ottawa. A year later, their first son, Lyon, was born in Ottawa (b. November 17, 1910). Mendel and Rose relocated from the Lakehead to Ottawa where children Sholom, (b. 1919), Shirley (b. 1921) and Allan (b. 1923) were born and raised along with Lyon. They lived on Cumberland Street. Mendel Pearlman was a jeweler by profession, having completed his apprenticeship in Russia. Their oldest son, Lyon Nathanial Pearlman, pursued a medical career, graduating from the University of Toronto Medical School in 1934. After interning in Ottawa hospitals, Dr. Pearlman studied pediatrics in Brooklyn and Philadelphia. In 1938, when Dr. Pearlman opened his Ottawa practice, he became the city’s first Jewish pediatrician. Dr. Pearlamn remained devoted to his practice for fifty years, and to Naomi (Perchanok) (b. 1917 - d. 2007), his wife of 53 years. They had three children, Elaine, Judy and Daniel, and numerous grandchildren. Dr. Lyon Pearlman passed away from pancreatic cancer on January 30, 1997.

Published in the Ottawa Citizen from 2/2/2007 - 2/3/2007 9. An abstract from a conference paper written by Michael Berger in 2007. "A 20th century pediatrician and the emergence of modern day pediatrics". The Proceedings of the 16th Annual History of Medicine Days, March 30th and 31st, 2007 Health Sciences Centre, Calgary, AB. Michael is the grandson of Lyon Pearlman. In 1922, in the midst of increasing infant mortality and the rampant spread of infectious disease, a small, but dedicated group of physicians founded the Canadian Pediatric Society in Toronto. Surprisingly, there was tremendous reluctance on the part of the Canadian medical establishment, comprised chiefly of academics and internists, in recognizing pediatrics as a distinct medical specialty. However, the early pediatricians were steadfast in their belief that the needs of a child were diverse, that children were susceptible to a different category of diseases and they required a continuum of care from infancy through to adolescence. They believed that only those trained to recognize these issues were qualified to nurture the growth and development of Canadian children. Dr. Lyon Pearlman, a pioneering Ottawa area pediatrician from 1938-1989, is an excellent example of an early practitioner who initiated changes at both the local and national level and helped to establish pediatrics as a specialty that integrates clinical, psychological and social issues in the management of illness. This paper will highlight some of his major contributions and place them within the context of the emergence of modern pediatrics. 10. Dr. Pearlman was fluent in Yiddish.
