Abstract:

James Cantile was born in Banffshire. Educated at Botriphnie's School and Milne's Institution, Cantlie then entered Aberdeen University and in 1871 graduated MA in natural science. After one year's training in medicine at Aberdeen, he transferred to the Charing Cross Hospital Medical School, London, but returned to Aberdeen to graduate MB CM. Cantlie then returned to Charing Cross to take up a post as Instructor in Anatomy and later Demonstrator in the same subject; he was later House Physician, House Surgeon and Surgical Registrar. He had taken a special interest in first aid and joined the newly formed St John's Ambulance Association. Cantlie had developed a successful private practice in tropical medicine in London and with Sir William Simpson he launched the Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in 1898. He also assisted Manson in the establishment of the London School of Tropical Medicine at the Albert Dock Hospital, where he became the first Surgeon and a lecturer in tropical surgery. He was also responsible for a Tropical Section of the British Medical Association, which was inaugurated at the Edinburgh meeting in 1898.
