Description

Seated half-length in college robes.

Arthur Henry Jacobs studied medicine at St Mungo's College in Glasgow and gained his Triple Qualification in 1920. He spent some further time training in London, Paris, and Vienna.

Widely considered the "father of urology" in Glasgow, he was appointed as a urologist at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary in 1930. He then became chief of the urology department by 1936. This department became a model for several other urology departments across the country. He was considered to be one of the best urologists in the world, with major contributions in the classification and surgical management of genitourinary tuberculosis.
