This biography is part of a series of historical obituaries, produced for the Royal College of Physicians. As products of their time periods, some biographies contain language which is inappropriate and offensive. We preserve these biographies for research, and we acknowledge that they do not all represent the RCP’s commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
We welcome the input of everyone who uses our library, archive and museum. If you wish to raise concerns about any of our obituaries, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
