George Goldie, M.D., was born in Edinburgh, where he received his medical education, and graduated doctor of medicine 24th June, 1808 (D.M.I. de Ictero). He was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 6th January, 1812. He settled in the first instance at Warminster, but soon removed to York, where he was much and deservedly esteemed. In 1822 he was appointed physician to the York county hospital, but resigned that office in 1833, about which time he removed to Shrewsbury. His success there was not commensurate to his anticipations, and ere long he returned to York. He died at Sheffield 2nd May, 1853, aged sixty-seven. Dr. Goldie contributed to the Cyclopædia of Practical Medicine the articles Hematemesis, Melæna, Purpura and Hematuria.
