Abstract

Sir Henry Williamson Gray was a prominent Aberdeen surgeon who took up the post of Chief of Surgery at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal in 1923. In what subsequently became known as "The Sir Henry Williamson Gray Affair" in the annals of McGill University, his career was ruined and his reputation left in tatters. The authors examine the available evidence and conclude that Gray was treated unfairly. They hope they have helped restore his name and reputation.
