Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Henry Gray (1827 - 13 June 1861) was an English anatomist and surgeon most notable for publishing the book Gray's Anatomy. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) at the age of 25. He was born in Belgravia, London, in 1827 and lived most of his life in London. In 1845, Gray entered as a student at St. George's Hospital, London (then situated in Belgravia, now in Tooting), and he is described by those who knew him as a most painstaking and methodical worker, and one who learnt his anatomy by the slow but invaluable method of making dissections for himself. While still a student, he secured in 1848, the triennial prize of Royal College of Surgeons for an essay entitled "The Origin, Connexions and Distribution of nerves to the human eye and its appendages, illustrated by comparative dissections of the eye in other vertebrate animals." In 1852, at the early age of twenty five, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, and in the following year he obtained the Astley Cooper prize of three hundred guineas for a dissertation "On the structure and Use of Spleen."show more
