MD Lond MRCS FRCP(1888)

Walter Hadden was born at Liverpool, the younger son of Robert Hadden, one of the proprietors of the Liverpool Courier. He went to Merchant Taylors’ School, Crosby, as a boy, and received his medical education at Liverpool Royal Infirmary, St. Thomas’s Hospital in London, and in Paris. He qualified in 1877 and then received a number of appointments on the junior staff of St. Thomas’s. He was elected assistant physician in 1885 and also held the lectureship on materia medica and therapeutics and, jointly, the lectureship on pathology. Hadden was physician for shorter periods to the St. George’s and St. James’s Dispensary, and the Royal Hospital for Women and Children, Waterloo Road, and assistant physician to the Hospital for Sick Children. He was an untiring worker, and his death was probably due to infection contracted during post mortem work.
