William Wilson, a student at Guy’s and St. Thomas’s, qualified in 1838 and in the same year graduated as M.D. at Göttingen, where he attracted the favourable attention of Langenbeck. Prolonged visits to the Continental schools and a spell as house surgeon at Guy’s Hospital preceded his settling in London practice. His chief appointment was as physician to the Royal Free Hospital. In 1847 he went to Italy to become physician to the Legation at Florence. Such was his success that he quickly attained the position of leading consultant in the city and elected to remain there for the rest of his long life.
