Doctor Carlos Pereira Magalhães Júnior
We regret to make known that Dr. Carlos Pereira Magalhães Júnior passed away at 84 years of age, on February 6, 2002, after a severe disease, at Hospital Albert Einstein (foto).
He has been a professor at Ginásio Anglo Latino and graduated in Medicine by the University of São Paulo, in 1944. He joined the Anesthesiology Department of Hospital das Clínicas in 1945, where he remained until 1956.
In 1955, Dr. Magalhães was elected President of the Department of Anesthesiology of the Medical Association of the State of São Paulo.
In 1956 he became a Director, actively participating in the foundation of the Clinic of Anesthesiology São Paulo, where the first Anesthesiology Teaching and Training Center of the Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology (CET/SBA) was created.
In 1959, Dr. Carlos Pereira Magalhães Júnior was awarded the title of Specialist, after a contest by the Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology, having actively participated in specialty Journeys and Meetings both in Brazil and abroad. He was distinguished for striving on behalf of the class in 1956 and 1966, when the Social Security System was unified.
With a strong and austere personality he was nevertheless very kind in dealing with friends and colleagues and was honored by the Society of Anesthesiology of the State of São Paulo (SAESP) in May 1996.
Dr. Magalhães was married to Sônia Pereira de Magalhães, with whom he constituted a large family: 8 children, 18 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
The memory we all have of this dedicated man and physician will never be forgotten for his qualities, competence, kindness, judgment, honesty and dedication to his family, friends and colleagues.
