Edward Stainer, son of Sir John Stainer, was educated at Oxford and St. Thomas’s Hospital, graduating as B.M. in 1897. He held junior appointments at the Hospital for Diseases of the Skin, Blackfriars, and the Hospital for Sick Children, as well as at his own Hospital, before being elected, in 1902, head of the latter's skin department. He assumed the additional duties of dean of the Medical School at St. Thomas’s in 1911. He resigned these in 1918 and from the skin department in 1920 on account of failing eyesight. A witty teacher, he had many interests outside his profession, particularly in the world of music, in which his father had been such a distinguished figure.
