James Fraser Mustard was a Canadian doctor, researcher in early childhood development, and founding president of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR). He attended the 1995 Bilderberg, as he retired from CIFAR.


Born on October 16, 1927, in Toronto, Ontario,[1] he attended Whitney Public School and the University of Toronto Schools graduating in 1946.[2] While an undergraduate at University of Toronto, he was a Member of Alpha Delta Phi.[3] He received an MD from the University of Toronto in 1953.[2] He interned at the Toronto General Hospital and spent two years of postgraduate study at the Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge, where he earned his Ph.D.[4]


Mustard began his career as a research fellow at the University of Toronto where he studied the effects of blood lipids, their relation to heart disease and how Aspirin could mitigate those effects. He published the first clinical trial showing that aspirin could prevent heart attacks and strokes.[5] In 1966, he was one of the founding faculty members at McMaster University's newly established medical school. He was the Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences and the medical school at McMaster University from 1972 to 1982. In 1982, he helped found the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research and was its founding president, serving until 1996. He wrote several papers and studies on early childhood development, including a report used by the Ontario Government that helped create a province-wide full-day kindergarten program. He won many awards including being made a companion of the Order of Canada – the order's highest level – and was inducted into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame. He died November 16, 2011.
