Biography

William Cayley was born on 14 December 1836 in Stamford, Lincolnshire, England.[1] He was educated at Shewsbury School, Queen's College, Cambridge and King's College, London (where he studied medicine).[2][3] He had a distinguished career as a doctor and teacher of medical students at Middlesex Hospital and King's College Hospital. While his considerable medical skills were recognised, his obituary in The Lancet described him as "reticent to a fault and lacking in the bedside manner and the capacity for small talk that often contribute to popular success. A lover of flowers and the classics, he was an expert mountaineer, spending his annual holidays in Switzerland and the Tyrol. A bachelor, non-smoker and teetotaller, he died in retirement in Richmond." He died on 17 December 1916.
