Dr. John Abercrombie, 1780-1844
[Mentioned in The People's Idea of God, p. 6]
John Abercrombie , the son of an Aberdeen minister, attended Marischal College before to Edinburgh for his medical studies. After taking his degree, he went to London for further study.
Settling in Edinburgh, Abercrombie carried on a large general practice there, besides giving much time to the Royal Public Dispensary. He quickly won the public's confidence and usually had four or five apprentices working under him. In 1828 he was appointed first physician in Scotland to the king.
When he was elected Lord Rector or Marischal College and University, Abercrombie's inaugural address dealt with the culture and discipline of the mind. He believed that men posses the power of controlling and directing their habits of attention and thought.
Abercrombie wrote many essays on the principles and practical duties of revealed religion. In all his researches, he sought the application of the truth he found. His distinguishing characteristics of philanthropy and good will were natural expressions of his piety.
