Obituary Of Dr. Thomas Stowell

Post by Karen on Tue 2 Mar 2010 - 1:21


The British Medical Journal also published the obituary of Dr. Thomas Edmund Alexander Stowell, who is reported to have kept to himself certain evidence/information which directly implicated the Royalty's involvement in the Ripper murders. In 1970, Dr. Thomas Stowell published the first article implicating Sir William Gull in the Criminologist, and wrote to the Times in November of the same year that he did not suggest that the Ripper was Prince Albert Victor. By the time the letter was published, Stowell was dead. He died on November 8, 1970 and within 18 hours after his death, his son had destroyed all of the papers that his father held. Here is Dr. Stowell's obituary in full:


Mr. T.E.A. Stowell, formerly honorary surgeon, Victoria Infirmary, Northwich, and consulting surgeon in the Emergency Medical Service, died on 8 November at his home in Southampton at the age of 80.
Thomas Edmund Alexander Stowell was born on 1 January 1890 and was educated at St. Paul's School, and St. Thomas's Hospital, where he was Tite Scholar, qualifying with the Conjoint diploma in 1910. He held early appointments at St. Thomas's Hospital, Grimsby and District Hospital, and the Royal Southern Hospital, Liverpool. In 1912 he took the F.R.C.S. and became assistant ophthalmic surgeon at St. Andrew's Hospital, Bromley-by-Bow, and Battersea General Hospital, and surgeon at St. Mary's Hospital, Sidcup. He was also honorary surgeon at the Victoria Infirmary, Northwich, and senior honorary surgeon and radiologist at the Mid Cheshire Orthopaedic Clinic, Northwich, and consulting surgeon in the Emergency Medical Service. At one time he was chief medical officer to Imperial Chemical Industries, and traumatic surgeon to Brunner Mond & Co. Ltd. He proceeded M.D. in 1927 and in 1954 the diploma in industrial health was conferred on him, honoris causa, by the Society of Apothecaries.
Thomas Stowell took a great interest in industrial medicine, and was a founder of the Association of Industrial Medical Officers (now the Society of Occupational Medicine). He served as chairman of the Council of Industrial Medicine, and of the medical advisory committee of the Industrial Welfare Society. As chairman of the British Organizing Council for the IX International Council of Industrial Health held in London in 1948 he worked very hard to make it the great success it proved to be, and in recognition of his services was appointed C.B.E. in the following year. He was also chairman of the British Committee of International Congresses on Industrial Health and Safety, and a member of various other medical societies and institutions both at home and abroad.
He was interested in criminology, and in an article published in The Criminologist said that for fifty years he had kept to himself certain evidence as to the identity of the notorious killer Jack the Ripper, which seemed to point to a man of noble family, for fear of involving as witnesses some close friends who were still alive.
He married in 1913 Lillian Elizabeth Wagner, who survives him together with their son. Their only daughter died in an accident in 1958.
D.H. writes: "I first met Tom Stowell in 1946, when he presided at the first meeting of the British organizing council for the Ninth International Congress on Industrial Medicine. He was a tall elegant figure, with an intellectual face and sporting a monocle. Naturally witty, he was gifted with a fine sense of humour and a sense of fun. All this considered, and given that he was a splendid raconteur, he made an admirable companion. One could listen indefinitely to the stories of his ancestors, who included a number of distinguished and exciting people. One of his lawyer ancestors was William Scott, created Baron Stowell of Stowell Park in 1821. Perhaps all this accounts for Stowell's skill in the witness box. Once he told me that in a difficult case one should speak slowly and hesitate merely to give one time to think should a knotty point arise. And now the sunshine of his personality and the warmth of his sense of fun have left us for good. Together with the rest of us his wife and son will remember him with great pride.
