  • Contemporary Medical Men- Dr. Bond

    I stumbled on this one looking for information on Dr. Bond. It has a portrait of him I personally have never seen, and also a nice biography. Another doctor of note is George Danford Thomas (Coroner for Central Middlesex). Again, a nice portrait is included with a biography.

    This volume includes a searchable index at the beginning of several medical men and was printed in 1888.

    Here is the link:

        Hi Jerry,

        Thanks for posting!

        I'm always on the lookout for obscure books which make reference to people involved in the case. I must admit that I haven't come across this volume before. I'll look out for a copy.

        Didn't Dr Tait opine that the Whitechapel and Thames torso murder's were the work of the same man?

        A nice find.

        My regards,

        Sean.

          Thanks, Howard and yes Sean, he did suggest they were one and the same. He also felt the killer may have been a woman.

          I was interested to see he performed abdominal sections and "had advanced to his present exalted position amongst professors of abdominal surgery". He probably had an idea or two about the ripper given his credentials.

            Hi Jerry,

            Until I read your post I'd completely forgotten Dr Tait.

            I can't go along with his female killer theory, but he does merit research.

            I wonder if he was ever consulted during the Whitechapel series of murders?

            Best wishes,

            Sean.

              Hi Sean,

              I've always felt a man dressed as a woman was possible. Also, I posted this link over at Casebook in a debate over the Torso killer and JTR being one and the same. Here it is the link for you to read here. From the late, great, Chris Scott.

                I also believe one of the doctors written about here, Malcolm Morris, Dermatologist, is the same man involved in the Charles Legrand/Amelia Porquoi case.

                Good picture of Dr. Morris for your next book, Tom Wescott!

                    Here is a link to Contemporary Medical Men and their Professional Work, Volume 1. Two notable names are Charles Darwin and Sir William Withey Gull. It looks like it was also released in 1888.

                      Hi Jerry, Yes, it is the same Malcolm Alexander Morris in the book. Atchaic posted about this book on casebook a few years back and I sent Tom the pic of Morris from it, but publishing pics is an expensive business I hear!!

                          Thanks Debs,

                          I should have done a better search before posting. I'm glad it was found one way or the other, it has some interesting info in it.

                            It is very difficult to find anything posted here on forums or CB using a search engine these days. The CB archives are accessible and can be trawled but I can't find things I know I've definitely posted here myself a lot of the time now!
