J. H. Bryant was born at Ilminster, the eldest son of William Mead Bryant. He was educated at Ilminster Grammar School and Sherborne, before becoming a student at Guy’s where in a brilliant career he won the Beaney prize and the Treasurer’s gold medals for medicine and surgery in 1891, a year after qualifying as M.R.C.S. Progress through the usual junior appointments led to his election as assistant physician in 1898, demonstrator of morbid anatomy in 1899 and lecturer on materia medica in 1906. Bryant was a painstaking teacher and a man of strong personality, as well as a rugby player of county standard and a fast sprinter. His wife, by whom he had one son and two daughters, was Stella Beatrice Fry. He died at Walmer, Kent.
