Biographical Dictionary of Freethinkers

  1. John, M.D., F.R.S. Elliotson

    An eminent medical man, born London, 1791. He became physician at St. Thomas’s Hospital in 1822, and made many contributions to medical science. By new prescriptions of quinine, creasote, etc., he excited much hostility in the profession. He was the first in this country to advocate the use of the stethoscope. He was also the first physician to discard knee-breeches and silk stockings, and to wear a beard. In ’31 he was chosen Professor at University College, but, becoming an advocate of curative mesmerism, he resigned his appointments, ’38. He was founder and President of the London Phrenological Society, and, in addition to many medical works, edited the Zoist (thirteen vols.), translated Blumenbach’s Physiology, and wrote an introduction to Engledue’s Cerebral Physiology, defending materialism. Thackeray dedicated Pendennis to him, ’50, and he received a tribute of praise from Dickens. Died at London, 29 July, 1868.
