John William Hue

b.1820 d.24 December 1903
MA Cantab FRCP(1856)

John Hue was persuaded to take up a medical career against his own inclination by his father, Clement Hue, F.R.C.P, who was physician to St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. After graduating as B.A. at Pembroke College, Cambridge, which he had entered in 1839, he began, in 1843, to study medicine at St. Bartholomew’s. He held for a time the office of physician to the Seamen’s Hospital, Greenwich, but retired from active practice about 1858, soon after his candidature for a vacant assistant physicianship at St. Bartholomew’s had failed. His home, for the remainder of his life, was in the Isle of Wight. He lived much abroad, however, and died at Dresden. Music provided Hue’s chief recreation.
