Caption

George Owen Rees (1813-1889), Welsh-Italian forensic toxicologist. Rees, a qualified physician, was an assistant to leading toxicology expert Alfred Swaine Taylor. Like Taylor, Rees worked at Guy's Hospital, London. Rees specialised in kidney disease and related blood and urine disorders. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1843, and later served as physician-extraordinary to Queen Victoria. Rees worked with Taylor on the celebrated 1856 murder trial of British physician William Palmer. The work of Rees and Taylor in relation to strychnine poisoning helped to convict Palmer, who was sentenced to death and executed by hanging.
