Text-book of Ophthalmology, Sir Stewart Duke-Elder. Author, Sir Stewart Duke-Elder. Publisher, C. V. Mosby,

In he graduated MA with first class honours in natural sciences, and passed the examination for the BSc with distinction in physiology. He was a demonstrator in physiology in the session at St Andrews and a demonstrator of anatomy in — at University College, Dundee, where he finished his medical course. He was a member of the council of the Students Union and was its president in He played rugby football and also took part in motor-cycle racing.

Duke-Elder qualified in medicine at St Andrews in He worked as a clinical assistant in the eye department in , and in the same year passed the final examination for the fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

At this stage he became interested in research concerning the physiology of the eye, and on the advice of Sir John Parsons FRS, a senior ophthalmic surgeon at University College Hospital, London, and Moorfields, he started research work at University College under the direction of Professor Starling FRS in the department of physiology and of Dr Drummond in the department of biochemistry.

He collected a number of prizes and research fellowships during this period including the Henry George Plimmer research fellowship, the Sir Francis Laking research scholarship and the BMA Scholarship. At Moorfields Eye Hospital he became clinical assistant to Sir John Parsons, and he was also appointed medical officer in the ultra-violet ray department.

He became surgeon at Moorfields in but subsequently retired from the hospital staff in on account of illhealth, and because of the many other commitments in which he was involved. However, many years later he was appointed consulting surgeon to Moorfields.

The year was a happy one for Stewart Duke-Elder because a certain young doctor came on the scene who was studying ophthalmology at Moorfields. She was Phyllis Mary Edgar. It was a short romance and they got married within a few months. In the States they made many friends, with whom they were to keep in touch throughout their lives.

Phyllis Duke-Elder was a great help to her husband in his work, especially when he was writing papers and books. She was frequently to be seen sitting in the library of the Royal Society of Medicine, looking up references and making abstracts for him.

Unfortunately she developed pulmonary tuberculosis, which involved her in having to submit herself to operations on the chest and to be away in Switzerland for long periods of convalescence, but they took it all in their stride, and eventually Phyllis was again able to join Stewart in all his activities.

The rapidity with which Stewart Duke-Elder achieved fame was quite remarkable. This was followed by an excellent work entitled The Practice of Refraction. His private practice grew apace, especially in when, after joint consultations with senior colleagues, he operated upon the then Prime Minister, Ramsay Macdonald, for glaucoma. But despite his long lists of operations and his many patients he found time to work hard at the first volume of his Textbook of Ophthalmology, which dealt with the development, form and function of the visual apparatus.

System Of Ophthalmology - Diseases Of the Lens and Vitreous

He stated that hitherto ophthalmologists had confined their interests to the structural ruins which disease had left behind, but now the tendency would be to probe more deeply and examine the more subtle nature of the initial defect, and to pass from the study of structures composed of cells to the study of cells composed of atoms and molecules, and to look beyond anatomy and pathology to biophysics and biochemistry.

The book was one of the most valuable contributions that Duke-Elder made to ophthalmology.

In the second world war Duke-Elder joined the RAMC in , starting with the rank of lieutenant and then rapidly becoming promoted to colonel, and subsequently to brigadier in the Army Medical Service, when he was appointed to the post of consultant ophthalmic surgeon to the Army. His wife volunteered for service with the Red Cross and was in charge of the Zachary Merton Convalescent Home at Kingswood, Surrey, which had been taken over by the Red Cross and was essentially used by Duke-Elder as a place where he could refer problem cases from the Army for whom special investigation and treatment might be needed.

Whilst Duke-Elder was engaged in army duties visiting hospitals in various theatres of war, his private practice was looked after partly by his wife and partly by his colleague Allen Goldsmith, whose general health prevented him from joining the Armed forces. Goldsmith continued to work in private practice with Duke-Elder until illness overtook him, resulting in his death in After the second world war, Duke-Elder was the leader of a number of ophthalmologists including Sir John Herbert Parsons and Miss Ida Mann, who were anxious to improve the standard of British ophthalmology, especially in the context of education and research.

With this end in view they planned to amalgamate the three main ophthalmic hospitals in London, Moorfields, the Royal Westminster and the Central London. The Central London Hospital became the Institute of Ophthalmology, where research laboratories, a library and a lecture room were set up. With Duke-Elder as director of research, the Institute soon became well known for the excellence of its work, and many young doctors and scientists came to work there from universities overseas.

It was largely his work at the Institute that won for Duke-Elder a distinction now rarely conferred upon members of the medical profession who are primarily engaged in clinical work, namely the Fellowship of the Royal Society. When he retired from the post of director of research at the Institute in , he was appointed its life president, and emeritus director of research. There is little doubt that the establishment of the Institute, a year before the National Health Service, was a great stimulus to the development of scientific ophthalmology in the United Kingdom, and so was the inauguration in of the Faculty of Ophthalmologists, with its headquarters at the Royal College of Surgeons of England in Lincolns Inn Fields.
