Biographical / Historical

Sir Henry Wentworth Acland (1815-1900) was a physician. In 1834 Acland matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford, he graduated B.A. in 1840, M.A. in 1842, M.B. in 1846, and M.D. in 1848. In 1840 he was elected fellow of All Souls' College and, in the same year, commenced the study of medicine, entering himself at St. George's Hospital, London.

It was for his services to medicine and medical education that Acland was accorded his Baronetcy in 1890. See the Dictionary of National Biography for further details.
