Joseph Albert Sullivan

Joseph "Joe" Albert Taylor Sullivan (January 8, 1901 – September 30, 1988) was a Canadian Olympic ice hockey player, physician, surgeon, and politician.

Born in Toronto, Ontario, he graduated from the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine in 1926. At the 1928 Winter Olympics in St. Moritz, he was the goaltender on the Canadian Gold medal ice hockey team and did not allow a goal in the three-game round-robin.

In 1930, he started his medical practice, specializing in otolaryngology. During World War II, he served as a captain in the Royal Canadian Air Force and worked in otolaryngology. After the war, he became an associate professor at the University of Toronto.

One of his patients was the Prime Minister of Canada, John Diefenbaker. In 1957, he was appointed to the Senate of Canada by Diefenbaker, representing the senatorial division of North York, Ontario. A Progressive Conservative, he resigned in 1985.

In 1988, he was inducted into the University of Toronto Sports Hall of Fame. The Senator Joseph A. Sullivan Trophy, named in his honour, is presented annually to the outstanding hockey player in Canadian Interuniversity Sport. A Roman Catholic, Sullivan was a Knight of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre and a Knight Commander of Order of St. Gregory the Great with distinction.
