THE PHARMA REVIEW (JANUARY - FEBRUARY 2017)

Edward John Waring (1819-1891) in India

Harkishan Singh

Introduction: While studying the pioneer proponents of the Indian Indigenous Drugs, I have written on the lives and contributions of Kanny Lall Dey1 and Udoy Chand Dutt.2 Next I studied Edward John Waring, to whom my first introduction came through a brief writing on him by Surgeon-Captain Basu.3 He said about Waring that: ‘He stands foremost in the rank of those who have made popular, the study and use in medical practice, of indigenous drugs.’

 
During a systematic search, through visits to different libraries and prolonged correspondence with others, for collection of source material on Waring, I was able to obtain a document4 rich in coverage on EJ Waring, which was published in 1888 when he was still alive; it may have been prepared on consultation with Waring.

 
For the present article the description by Leyland4 proved to be very helpful. Note was also made of the brief writings,5-10 particularly of the events which occurred in Waring’s life in the years after 1888.
