Walter Cheadle

Walter Butler Cheadle was educated at Gaius College, Cambridge, and studied medicine at St. George’s Hospital, London. In 1861, he interrupted his studies to join Lord Milton on the expedition documented in Cheadle’s Journal. Mount Cheadle, located in the Monashee Range of British Columbia, was named in honour of his trip to this area. Intrumental in his field of medicine, Cheadle was an avid advocate of women’s rights in the study of medicine, and was the first man to lecture at the London School of Medicine for Woman. He is also credited as having distinguished scurvy from rickets in 1878. Walter Cheadle died in London, England, in 1910.
