This index was produced from a digital copy of the book, which can be downloaded from: https://books.google.com/ Google, in partnership with a number of public libraries has sought to make more widely accessible, old, hard-to-get books on which copyright has expired. Dr Thomas Shapter, LL.D., M.D., FRCP (1809-1902) was born in Gibraltar, graduated from Edinburgh University, and arrived in Exeter in the year cholera arrived, 1832. He was appointed physician in 1847 at the Exeter and Devon Hospital but also worked for the Magdalen Hospital, The Lying-in-Charity and St Thomas' Hospital for Lunatics (1845). He led an active public life, retiring from the staff of the Devon and Exeter Hospital in 1876 and later moved to London. His departure from the city was under something of a cloud "His reputation seems to have suffered locally from the injudicious acceptance of a legacy from a mental patient under his care". In old age he went blind and died in 1902 aged 93. He is best known for his interest in environment and disease through his work History of the Cholera in Exeter in 1832, published in 1849.
