Angel Money, who was descended from a Jewish family, was educated at a private school and then apprenticed to a doctor. At University College, London, he was a brilliant student. Qualifying in 1879, he filled junior appointments in University College Hospital and the Hospital for Sick Children, and became physician to outpatients at the General Lying-In Hospital. He was appointed assistant physician to the City of London Hospital for Diseases of the Chest in 1883, to the Hospital for Sick Children in 1885 and to University College Hospital in 1887, in which year he published a successful work on the Treatment of Diseases of Children. In 1891 his career was disrupted by a nervous breakdown due to overwork, and after a visit to Cape Town he decided to start afresh, choosing to settle in Sydney. He suffered a further breakdown in 1903, and, after returning from a voyage to recruit his health, he died at Sydney. He was a married man.
