About

A medical doctor by profession. From "The Australian Dictionary of Biography": \"Educated at Sydney Grammar School and the University of Sydney (B.Sc., 1902; M.B., Ch.M., 1904; M.D., 1918), he was a distinguished scholar [...] After postgraduate work in England in 1907-08, he returned to Sydney and was honorary assistant physician at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. From 1923 he practised as a consulting physician.

"In World War II he was involved in recruiting for the Royal Australian Air Force before joining the merchant navy as a ship's surgeon. His experience of being twelve days adrift in the Indian Ocean, after Nellore was sunk by a Japanese submarine, did not deter him from serving as medical officer in merchant ships until 1960. He died in Sydney on 19 February 1964, survived by three daughters by his wife Jane Drummond Gordon (d. 1942), née Blackmore, whom he had married in Sydney on 29 June 1911."
