Cyril Ogle was the third son of John William Ogle, F.R.C.P, physician to St. George’s Hospital, and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Albert Smith of Ecclesall, near Sheffield. For his education he went to Westminster School and Trinity College, Oxford, graduating in natural science in 1884. He was a medical student at St. George’s, and, after qualifying in 1888, held in turn the usual junior appointments in the Hospital, until he was elected assistant physician in 1897. He became full physician eight years later, lectured on medicine and on pharmacology and therapeutics, and was made consulting physician when he retired in 1926. By then he had established a reputation for himself as a sound and unusually industrious general physician with great diagnostic ability. He examined for Cambridge University and the Conjoint Board, and held office as a Censor of the Royal College of Physicians. A modest and retiring individual, Ogle died, a bachelor, at Folkestone.
