Caption: John Fothergill (1712-1780), English physician and botanist. Fothergill was initially apprenticed to an apothecary, qualifying as a medical doctor in 1736 after studying at the University of Edinburgh. He practised medicine in London, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1763. His papers and works covered topics such as mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, trigeminal neuralgia (also known as Fothergill's disease), and streptococcal sore throat. His botanical work included maintaining a large botanical garden. The plant genus Fothergilla is named in his honour. Artwork from 'Literary Anecdotes' (John Nichols, 1812).
