Lives of the fellows

William Richard Huggard

d.10 Oct 1911

W. R. Huggard received his medical education at the Queen’s Colleges of Galway and Belfast, University College, London, and Vienna. He graduated as M.D, M.Ch, in 1875 and B.A. a year later. For a few years he lived in London, acting as superintendent of the Sussex and Brandenburg House Asylums, Hammersmith, and as physician to the St. Pancras and Northern Dispensary. About 1884 he decided to practise in Switzerland. Having studied at Geneva and taken the Swiss Federal Diploma in 1885, he settled permanently in Davos. It was largely owing to his support that a clinical laboratory was maintained there for over twenty years. He published a Handbook of Climatic Treatment, including Balneology in 1906. For many years he was British Consul in the town. He died at Davos.
