Obituary Of Dr. Phillips

Post by Karen on Sat 27 Feb 2010 - 20:47

Dr. George Bagster Phillips examined the remains of Annie Chapman, murdered by Jack the Ripper on September 8, 1888. He also examined the remains of Elizabeth Stride, murdered by Jack the Ripper on September 30, 1888, and also examined the remains of Mary Jane Kelly, murdered by Jack the Ripper, on November 9, 1888.


By the death, from apoplexy of Mr. G.B. Phillips, on October 27th, East London has lost a very well known practitioner. Mr. Phillips's first qualification was obtained in 1861, and he was one of the oldest of the metropolitan police surgeons, having been surgeon to the H Division for more than thirty years. Some time ago his name became widely known in connection with the "Jack the Ripper" murders. A considerable number of these atrocious crimes were committed in the district in which he lived, and he was employed by the police to make necropsies on the mutilated victims. The praiseworthy manner in which he performed these duties procured him a well-merited reputation, and he has been repeatedly referred to by the magistrates at the metropolitan police-courts for expert evidence. He was always courteous to and popular with his professional brethren, and his familiar presence will be sorely missed by them.
