226 Obituary. R. D. THOMSON, M.D., F.R.S.L. & E., F.R.C.P. WE regret to have to announce the demise of this gentleman on the 17th inst., at the residence of his brother, Dunstable House, Richmond. Dr. Thomson was born in the year 1811, in the parish of Eccles, in Berwickshire, of which his father was minister. He was educated for the medical profession in Edinburgh and Glasgow. In Glasgow he studied chemistry under his uncle, Dr. Thomas Thomson, then Professor there; and in 1840 he was at Giessen under Liebig. After making one voyage to India and China in the service of the East India Company about lb35, he settled as a physician in London, and tooklan active part in the establishment of the Blenheim-street School of Medicine. At an early period of his career he applied his chemical knowledge to the investigation of a variety of physiological questions-the composition of the blood, especially in cholera, amongst others; and he soon made himself a reputation as a correct and philosophical observer. He was employed by Government to make a series of experiments on the food of cattle, and to analyse the water supplied by the different London companies. His researches on the constituents of food in relation to the systems of animals have long been a standard source of reference for physiologists pursuing similar inquiries, and have served as a basis for much of the progress of modern dietetical science. They had extended circulation amongst the scientific world here, and passed through two American editions. In 1841 he went to Glasgow as an assistant to his illustrious uncle, the Professor of Chemistry, whose failing health required assistance, and who died in 1852. Dr. Thomson was un- successful as candidate for the chair and returned to London, where he was appointed Lecturer on Chemistry to St. Thomas’s Hospital ; and when medical officers of health were appointed under the Metropolitan Local Management Act, he was the successful candidate for St. Marylebone. This appointment was admirably fitted to bring out his abilities. He devoted himself with great zeal and industry to the organization of a system of inspection in that extensive parish. In this difficult undertaking he was so successful that his colleagues were glad to follow in his steps ; and when they formed themselves into a.n Association of Health Officers they ultimately appointed him their president. Dr. Dundas Thomson took always a leading part in the discussion of sanitary questions, as he was qualified to do; and the position which he held among his compeers in the metropolis was worthy of the great borough which he represented. From his position as a health officer he became widely known as an authority on sanitary matters. He was employed by the Itegistrar-General to make a monthly report of the amount of impurity in the waters of the different London companies. For the last; two years his health (long robust) had begun to fail, but it is only within the last few months that his friends have felt seriously uneasy. For more than a month he was unable to leave his room, and he expired on Wednesday morn- ing at eleven A.M. At this late period of the week it is impos- sible for us to give a detailed account of his labours and works, but we hope to be able to return to the subject. Dr. Thomson was loved and admired by his friends ; and his conduct as the health officer of the largest parish in the metropolis commanded the respect of the public, who are indebted to him for services which are not yet fully appreciated. The vestry of 8t. Marylebone will find it difficult to select as his successor one who combines in his character the courage, honesty, practical sagacity, and profound scientific attainments which adorned the man whose loss we deplore. We sincerely trust that they will use their utmost efforts to seek a successor worthy to tread in his steps. MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS.
