d ways of healing and to make known the principles of maintaining good health- a vigorous, independent man sharing the hope which the ideas of the French Revolution gave so many 9f his contemporaries. In his life he was a controversial figure and judgement and detached appreciation of his work was often made impossible by anger at his revolutionary political views.

It becomes evident that where Beddoes was held in esteem and where he had influence it was not for particular activities but for what he was in the round. With due respect - and with gratitude - to specialist accounts of his achievements as a chemist and of his endeavours to fmd a cure for pulmonary consumption and his efforts to bring about an understanding of the importance of preventive medicine, I have tried in this account to see him whole.

Historians of chemistry and of medicine- educationalists- and those concerned with womens studies will each continue to find particular episodes or parts of Beddoes life of special interest. At the same time I hope this, the first attempt at a biography - for J. E. Stocks 1811 account is truly named Memoirs - will add to our understanding of his varied activities.
