Friendship with R. Tait McKenzie

Known as the Brothers of the Wind, McKenzie and Naismith were lifelong friends.  These two pioneers in their own right lead incredibly similar lives.  Both attended McGill University as directors of Gymnastics and became medical doctors.  They held similar values when it came to the importance of developing both mind and body – that they went hand in hand.
