Born in Bristol, Vincent Harris went to St. Bartholomew’s Hospital for his medical training and graduated as M.B. in 1874. While remaining at St. Bartholomew’s to fill a succession of junior posts, he was appointed to the honorary staffs of the Metropolitan Hospital (1876), the West London Hospital (1877) and the City of London Hospital for Diseases of the Chest (1878); with the last of these he remained in lasting association. Both before and after retiring to Milford-on-Sea in 1904, he also maintained a close connection with the National Hospital, Ventnor. Harris was editor of some of the earlier editions of Kirkes’s Physiology and wrote The Treatment of Pulmonary Consumption (1895) in collaboration with E. C. Beale. An able committee man, he took a prominent part in local affairs after his retirement. He died at Milford-on-Sea.
