Mr Victor Ewings Negus presented his Semon Lecture at the Royal Society of Medicine on the 6th of November 1930. His talk centred around using comparative anatomy to provide evidence for Semon’s law and to do so he looked at the anatomy of animals, such as fish.
Victor Negus was born on the 6th of February 1887 in London, England. One of the things he is most famous for is his invention, the Negus bronchoscope. This bronchoscope incorporated illumination on both ends of the scope and allowed forceps to be inserted at the same time. After a shining career, he was knighted in 1956.
