William Cullen and Joseph Black

  • James Wallace


Based on the writer's Presidential Address to the Royal Scottish Society of Arts.

My story begins in the year 1710 in the town of Hamilton where WILLIAM CULLEN was born. His father was an attorney who acted as factor to the Duke of Hamilton. William was the second son of a family of seven sons and two daughters, and the children received their early education at the local Grammar School, the forerunner of the present Hamilton Academy. At the age of 17, William attended some of the Arts Classes at Glasgow University, and shortly after this he decided to follow a medical career.
