History of the Samuel Gee lecture

The lecture was established by a bequest from Miss Edith Thyra Gee in 1964 in memory of her father, Dr Samuel Jones Gee who died in 1911. 

Samuel Gee, a Fellow, had a longstanding relationship with the College. He was the Goulstonian lecturer in 1871, Bradshaw lecturer in 1892 and Lemleian lecturer in 1899 as well as senior censor. He was appointed physician to the Prince of Wales (later King George V) in 1901. His book Medical Lectures and Aphorism contains all of his lectures given at the College.

Gee is recognised as one of the greatest medical experts of his day and one of the greatest clinical teachers of the Victorian era. He was the first to identify coeliac disease and wrote extensively on medicinal topics such as chicken pox, scarlet fever and tubercular meningitis.
