Portrait of Alexander Dunlop Anderson MD 1797-1871, President 1852-1855

Description

Half-length portrait of Anderson wearing a black jacket.

Anderson studied medicine in Glasgow, Edinburgh and London, becoming a member of the College of Surgeons in 1816. He finally graduated with an MD in Edinburgh in 1819, moving to Glasgow the year after to set up practice. He joined the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in 1821.

Although primarily a physician, Anderson also had experience in surgery and held several surgical positions at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary during the 1820s. He was eventually appointed Physician to the Infirmary in 1838, and was also Physician to the Institution for the Deaf and Dumb.
