Sir William Withey Gull
Birth: Dec. 31, 1816
Death: Jan. 29, 1890
London, England

Medical Pioneer. Born in Saint Leonards, Colchester, his ability as a medical person was soon discovered and in 1843 was made a lecturer in the very hospital were he originally attended lecturers himself and held employment. Through the 1850's he worked his way up from Assistant Physician to Full Physician and in 1869 was made a fellow of the Royal Society. He was created a ‘Baronet' in 1872 as reward and recognition to the medical skill that he had delivered to The Prince of Wales who had suffered an attack of Typhoid fever in 1871. He progressed through his career to becoming one of the most respected and knowledgeable physicians of the 19th century and later had the honor of becoming the physician to Queen Victoria. However, a story arose that Gull was connected and suspected on taking part in the famous "Jack the Ripper" murders also known as "The Whitechapel Murders "in London, and is often today involved in discussions and popular literature concerning the famous case. In his seventies he suffered a stroke and eventually died at his home in London from a series of paralytic strokes. (bio by: Hilts)
