Research Facts
Dr. William Hunter (1718 - 1783) was a Scottish anatomist and physician born in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire. After studying divinity athe University of Glasgow, he went into medicine in 1737, studying under William Cullen. He was trained in anatomy at St. George's Hospital, London, and specialized in midwifery. In 1764 he became physician to Queen Charlotte; elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1767 and Professor of Anatomy to the Royal Academy in 1768.
In the 1950 – 60s this portrait collection was compiled by Dr. Thomas Gibson, and later by Dr. Etherington, from old publications to create a historical medical gallery of pioneers of modern medical sciences for teaching medical students at Queen’s University, Kingston. Many of these prints do not indicate the date of the publication or source. Original prints are heavily glued to thick paper backing. Prints were framed at Kirkpatrick’s Art & Flower Store in Kingston, Ontario, as noted on the blue paper labels on the reverse.
