The doctor's full name is given in Marquis Who's Who as Robert
Volpeacute, though he is listed on a number of websites as Robert
Volpe and Robert Volpé.

Found using Biography Resource Center, available in many academic and
public libraries, and you can obtain the full biography article in a
nearby library or online, if you have a library card. I include below
the points you mention.

Information about recent affiliations and honors are available, but,
strangely enough, I have not found information about his place of
birth, early training, etc., although he did apparently get his MD
from the University of Toronto in 1950.

For other researchers, most of the online references to Dr. Volpe
spell his name with a diacritical mark over the e; that is, "é".
