THE JOURNAL OF CUTANEOUS DISEASES INCLUDING SYPHILIS
Dr. George Thin took his degree in surgery in Scotland in 1858, and two years afterwards that in medicine. After graduation he practiced medicine in Scotland, and then spent a number of years in China and became well versed in tropical medicine. Returning to London, while still continuing his interest in tropical medicine and making a great reputation in that branch, he turned his attention to dermatology, studying that branch of medicine both in London and on the Continent. He won for himself an enviable reputation as a dermatologist, and was one of the original members of the Dermatological Society of London. Poor health recently compelled him to give up active work. About a year ago he went to the Continent, and died in Nice on December 27th, 1903, of cardiac disease.
