Bird Golding

Bird, Golding, M.D., was born in 1815, and entered the medical profession, taking his degree at the university of St. Andrew's, and obtaining the fellowship of the College of Physicians, London. He was attached to the medical school of Guy's hospital, and in 1844 published a remarkable work on renal diseases and the functions of the kidney. His labours vastly extended the scope of diagnosis in disorders connected with that organ, and he at once sprang into a great practice, receiving, too, the fellowship of the Royal Society. Unhappily his overtaxed constitution was undermined by the very malady which he had made his special study, and he died in 1854.
