Dr. James Johnson, 1777-1845
[Mentioned in Science and Health, p. 163, and The people's Idea of God, p. 6]
James Johnson , Irish physician, writer, and editor, attained his skills through enormous perseverance. By the time he was seventeen, he had passed an examination in the classics and worked two years under a surgeon-apothecary. With this background he left Ireland for London. During the next eleven years he constantly studied and was finally appointed a full surgeon in the Navy. His assignments took him to Newfoundland, Egypt, the Orkney and Shetland Islands, Greenland, India, and China. His travels inspired his first publication.
Impressed by his recovery under Dr. Johnson's care on the "Impregnable," the Duke of Clarence, when he acceded to the throne as William IV, appointed Dr. Johnson physician extraordinary.
At the end of the war in 1814 Dr. Johnson took up general practice first in Portsmouth and then in London. He also edited a medical journal. To punctuality he attributed his ability to carry on the extensive activity which was the leading characteristic of his life.
