Moynihan, Berkeley George Andrew

Moynihan, Berkeley George Andrew
later Baron Moynihan (of Leeds)

born Oct. 2, 1865, Malta
died Sept. 7, 1936, Carr Manor, Leeds, Yorkshire, Eng.

British surgeon and teacher of medicine.

He wrote or cowrote authoritative monographs on surgery to treat diseases of various abdominal organs, as well as Abdominal Operations (1905), a standard text for two decades, and Duodenal Ulcer (1910), which secured his reputation as a clinical scientist. He stressed obtaining medical evidence from living bodies on the operating table rather than from autopsies. He helped found the British Journal of Surgery (1913) and organizations to promote nationwide and international communication among surgeons and specialists. He was raised to the peerage in 1929.
