Lithotomist & prostatectomist
Sir Peter Freyer was born and educated in Galway, Ireland.
He started his medical career with the army in India where caused a furore by accepting payment from the Nawab of Rampur for his urological services.
He established himself in Harley Streeet as an accomplished transurethral stone surgeon.
Once back in London, he popularised the operation of open (transvesical) prostatectomy.
His autograph was sourced from 1917. For more detailed biographical information, go to Sir Peter Freyer's entry in the Famous Urologists' Room.

This signature is on a reference letter written by Peter Freyer for Albert Clifford Morson. Morson was applying for a job at St Peter's Hospital. The reference was good and Morson got the job. Read the letter here. The letter was written during the First World War and as you can see Freyer has signed himself Lieutenant Colonel, he was put in charge of the Brighton Hospital for wounded Indian soliders.
