Abstract

Born in Lanarkshire, physician Matthew Baillie (1761-1823) was a nephew of John and William Hunter. John was one of his teachers, and he inherited William’s home and medical school in London. His patients included Lord Byron and Walter Scott, and he eventually became Physician in Ordinary to George III. Matthew is best known for his work on ‘morbid anatomy’, the study of diseased tissues and organs.
