William Warrington was born in Liverpool, the son of John T. Warrington, J.P. He studied medicine at Owens College, Manchester, and the Rotunda Hospital, Dublin, taking the Manchester M.B., Ch.B, degrees in 1891 and the London M.B. in 1893. He obtained house appointments at the Manchester Royal Infirmary, the City of London Hospital for Diseases of the Chest, and the National Hospital for the Paralysed and Epileptic, and then visited Leipzig to begin researches on neurology, which he continued under Sherrington at Liverpool, where he settled in practice. His first honorary appointments were as assistant physician to the Stanley Hospital and the Hospital for Consumption; afterwards he became physician to the Northern Hospital and assistant physician to the Liverpool Royal Infirmary. He was lecturer on neuropathology at Liverpool University and examined for London University. During the 1914-1918 War he found scope for his neurological experience as a captain in the R.A.M.C., working on traumatic nerve lesions and their after-effects. Warrington was survived by his widow, two sons and a daughter.
