Joseph Lister, British surgeon Featured Walter Williams Print

Joseph Lister, British surgeon

Joseph Lister (1827-1912), British surgeon. Lister qualified as a surgeon in London in 1852. At that time surgery was usually followed by infection and high mortality rates. Lister, having read Pasteur's work on fermentation, realised that micro-organisms causing this could be killed with chemical compounds. Lister's antiseptic procedures produced immediate improvements and were quickly adopted. Lister was made a baronet (1883), baron (1897) and a member of the Order of Merit (1902). This 1922 work by H. Blackburn Hart is based on the 1897 portrait by British artist Walter William Ouless (1848-1933)
