About this item
Front of dust jacket has a piece missing as seen in the photograph, back has a similar sized piece missing. Top edge of pages are slightly grubby but inside is clean.
William Evans was born and brought up on his father's farm in Wales. After considering the Church as a career, he finally chose Banking, a career which was brought to a close by the First World War. After serving as an officer in the Lancashire Fusiliers, during which time he was in action at Passchendaele and in the Ypres Salient, he decided to take up Medicine and entered the London Hospital as a medical student in 1920. After qualifying he was fortunate in being appointed house physician to Sir John Parkinson at the hospital, later becoming his chief assistant in the Heart Department. He occupied a similar position with Lord Dawson of Penn when he was called upon to use the electrocardiograph, then a fairly novel instrument, in the investigation of some of Dawson's patients.
Doctor Evans increased his reputation as an authority on disease of the heart during the next thirty years of practice and finally retired at the peak of his fame in 1967. He has published many classical works on medicine in general, and on cardiology in particular, and has lectured in foreign countries to distinguished audiences.
