ActivityThomas Graham Brown was born in Edinburgh and educated at Edinburgh Academy and University, then at Strasbourg. His first medical post was at Glasgow University, then he was awarded the Carnegie Fellowship in Physiology at Liverpool in 1910. In 1913 he was appointed lecturer in Experimental Physiology, but the First World War interrupted his work and he served in a medical capacity, mostly in Salonika. From 1920 he was Professor of Physiology at the University of Wales, a chair he held until 1947. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1927. Much of his retirement was involved in climbing, a lifelong interest, and he was editor of The Alpine Journal from 1948. He wrote on climbing and neurology, and also devoted some time to sailing. He died in 1965.
