Frank Buszard, son of Dr. Marston Buszard of Lutterworth, was educated at Rugby and Guy’s Hospital, where, after qualifying in 1860, he served as house surgeon. He then obtained the same post at the Northampton General Hospital and afterwards began to practise in Northampton. Having become an F.R.C.S. in 1864 he was elected surgeon to the General Hospital twelve years later. In 1878, however, he gave up surgery in favour of medicine, remaining on the staff as physician till his retirement in 1912. He did much to improve conditions in the Hospital during this period. He was also on the staff of the Market Harborough Dispensary. Buszard was prominent as a member of the Northampton town council and in local Conservative politics. He was an accomplished orator and a fine athlete. He died at Dallington, Northampton, survived by his widow, two daughters and a son.
