Dr. Alfred James Meyrick Paget, who died on September 15th, after many months of failing health, was the third son of Sir George Edward Paget, K.C.B., formerly, Regius Professor of Physic in the University of Cambridge. Ho was born at Cambridge in 1869, and entered s.s Conway, a training ship for the merchant service, but after a year's work was disabled by a severe accident. His love of shooting then led him to try ranching as a premium student in Canada, but finding this unsatisfactory he returned at the age of 19 with a desire to enter the medical profession. He obtained the M.B. degree at Edinburgh in 1895 and proceeded M.D. in 1898. His health proving unequal to the strain of general practice, he took service in the following year under the Foreign Office and became a medical officer for the Uganda Protectorate. He got no further than Nandi, where he lay for two months dangerously ill with malaria. He was invalided and then transferred to Kenya, where he spent four years of pioneer work in an unsettled country. From Kenya he went to Somaliland as senior medical officer, and remained there till 1916, through the troubled years of the "Mad Mullah's" activities. He received the Somaliland medal for services during military operations, especially for attending and rescuing Colonel Summers when wounded. His administrative work was highly praised, and he did much towards starting hospitals and training native attendants. In 1916 he was invalided, and shortly afterwards joined the R.A.M.C. as a temporary lieutenant; he worked in the Lord Derby Hospital, Warrington, and afterwards at Ripon. From 1918 to 1925 he took temporary duty as a neurological expert, chiefly on pensions boards in London. In May of this year his health finally broke down. He leaves three sons, of whom Dr. Meyrick Yare Paget is a member of the medical profession.

In 1941 Dr. Meyrick Yare Paget was practicing medicine in the Exeter Area.

In 1924 Dr. Meyrick Yare Paget was a House Surgeon at the Prince of Wales Hospital.
