b.1808 d.10 March 1886
MD Pavia(1835) FRCP(1848)

Frederic Weber, a native of Trieste, studied at Heidelberg and Pavia, taking the M.D. degree of the latter University in 1835. For the next two years he made a round of the hospitals of Parma, Leipzig, Berlin, Paris and London. During his visit to London, Sir Thomas Watson and other members of the profession persuaded him to settle there and, with his charm of manner and his knowledge of Continental spas to help him, he succeeded in establishing himself in consulting practice. His first appointments were as physician to the St. George’s and St. James’s Dispensary and as assistant physician to the Middlesex Hospital. He took a keen interest in the Harley Street Institute for Invalid Ladies, with which he was associated for no fewer than forty-six years. Various embassies, too, employed him as their physician. He was a Censor of the Royal College of Physicians from 1859 to 1861. Weber was endowed with a fine voice and considerable musical talent.
