Dates of existence


Donald George Sutherland was educated at Watson's College and the University of Edinburgh, graduating in 1886 with the university medal in medical jurisprudence and public health, and taking the BSc in public health three years later. In 1890 Dr Sutherland became Medical Officer of Health for the county of Sutherland and Burgh of Dornoch. He was later called to the Bar by the Middle Temple and, in 1899, entered as an advanced research student at St John's College, Cambridge, receiving the degrees BA (1901) and MA (1908) of that university. After a period as assistant bacteriologist in the Local Government Board Laboratories he was appointed Senior Bacteriologist to the Metropolitan Water Board in 1905. He wrote a succession of nine Sanitary Reports on the County of Sutherland and a dissertation On Certain Spore-Bearing Anaerobic Considered as Criteria in the Bacterial Examination of Water Supplies.
