The Halliburton Lecture in Physiology
The Halliburton Lecture in Physiology is named after William Dobinson Halliburton (1860-1931) who was Professor of Physiology at King’s from 1890 to 1923. He was author of 'A Text-Book of Chemical Physiology and Pathology' (1901) and a 'Hand-book of Physiology' which went through many editions.
He left £10,000 to King’s '..towards the salary of a professor in the subject of physiology or the sciences relating thereto' (King’s and Some King’s Men, H Willoughby Lyle 1935). In 1932 the rebuilt Physiology Laboratory was named after him. The present Halliburton Chair is currently held by Ian Thompson.
