He was professor at McGill, the University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins, and Oxford. His many medical observations include those on blood platelets and on the abnormally high red blood cell count in polycythemia. He wrote The Principles and Practice of Medicine (1892), one of the most prestigious medical textbooks in modern times, often revised, and A Concise History of Medicine (1919). Walt Whitman was one of his most famous patients.
