Arthur Pollock was one of the younger sons of Sir Frederick Pollock, Chief Baron of the Court of Exchequer. He studied medicine at King’s College, London, and qualified in 1859. In 1866 he was elected assistant physician to Charing Cross Hospital, and five years later physician. He lectured in turn on pathology (1866-68), forensic medicine (1869-71) and medicine (1874-90). He was dean of the Medical School from 1868 to 1874 and thereafter treasurer; and it was for his administrative efficiency and for his skill in handling certain domestic crises that the Hospital was chiefly indebted to him. Pollock was also on the staff of the Foundling Hospital.
