Henry Gray

Henry Gray was a British anatomist and surgeon most notable for publishing the book Gray's Anatomy. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society at the age of 25. Gray lived most of his life in London. In 1842, he entered as a student at St. George's Hospital, he is described by those who knew him as a most painstaking and methodical worker, one who learned his anatomy by the slow but invaluable method of making dissections for himself. While still a student, Gray secured the triennial prize of Royal College of Surgeons in 1848 for an essay entitled The Origin and Distribution of nerves to the human eye and its appendages, illustrated by comparative dissections of the eye in other vertebrate animals. In 1852, at the early age of 25, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, in the following year he obtained the Astley Cooper prize of three hundred guineas for a dissertation "On the structure and Use of Spleen.” In 1858, Gray published the first edition of Anatomy, which covered 750 pages and contained 363 figures.

He had the good fortune of securing the help of his friend Henry Vandyke Carter, a skilled draughtsman and a demonstrator of anatomy at St. George's Hospital. Carter made the drawings from; the excellence of Carter's illustrations contributed to the initial success of the book. This edition was dedicated to Sir Benjamin Collins Brodie, Bart, FRS, DCL. A second edition was prepared by Gray and published in 1860; the book is still published under the title Gray's Anatomy and appreciated as an authoritative textbook for medical students. Gray held successively the posts of demonstrator of Anatomy, curator of the museum and Lecturer of Anatomy at St. George's Hospital and was in 1861 a candidate for the post of assistant surgeon; the Origin and Distribution of Nerves to the Human Eye and its Appendages, illustrated by Comparative Dissections of the Eye in Other Vertebrate Animals - essay On the Structure and Use of Spleen - jointly illustrated by Henry Vandyke Carter Descriptive and Surgical Anatomy 1ST Edition - jointly illustrated by Henry Vandyke Carter - popularly known as Gray's Anatomy Descriptive and Surgical Anatomy 2ND Edition - jointly illustrated by Henry Vandyke Carter and John Gulse Westmacott - popularly known as Gray's Anatomy Gray was struck by an attack of confluent smallpox, the most deadly type of the disease where individual lesions become so numerous that they join as a continuous, "confluent" sheet.

He is assumed to have been infected due to his extended and meticulous caring for his ten-year-old nephew, Charles Gray, who did recover. On the day he was to appear for an interview as a final candidate for a prestigious post at the St. George's Hospital, he died in London - 13 June 1861 - at the age of 34, he was buried at St James and Highgate Cemetery. Gray had been vaccinated against smallpox as a child with one of the early forms of the vaccine; some information was extracted from an article which appeared in the St. George's Hospital Gazette of 21 May 1908 and has been taken directly from Gray's Anatomy-Thirty-seventh International Student Edition.

Local folks believed that before the Spanish Era, the most common enemy of the Sri Vijayan settlers was the Moro pirates, they were ruthless men who took anything of value including children. At the first sight of the Moro vintas, inhabitants would flee to the mountains of Talisay, the last line of defense of the able-bodied men; this was where their elders would call “Anhi ta Makig-away ug Mag-away”. With the passage of time, it was called “Maghaway”.

Dunderave Castle

Dunderave Castle is an L-plan castle built in the 16th century as the Scottish seat of the MacNaughton clan. The castle lies on a small promontory on the northern shores of Loch Fyne, around 5 kilometres north-east of Inveraray, Argyll; the castle is in use as a residence. The present castle was built; the old castle, remnants of McNaughton crannógs, can still be seen on the lochan known as the Dubh Loch at the head of Glen Shira. The name Dunderave is of Gaelic origin. Since the MacNachtans were designated'of Dunderave' from as early as 1473, the place-name appears to have moved with the clan from the Dubh Loch, it has been suggested that the name derives either from Dun-an-Rudha, meaning'The Knoll on the Promontory', or else from Dun-da-Ramh,'The Castle of Two Oars'. The latter is taken to imply; the castle was restored and remodelled in 1911 by Sir Robert Lorimer relandscaping the gardens at the same time.
