      SIR HUGH ADCOCK, C.M.G.
      Dr. Hugh Adcock, upon whom the Queen has conferred the honour of knighthood, is Consulting Physician-in-Chief to the Shah of Persia and resides at Teheran. Sir Hugh Adcock, who is the son of Mr. Christopher Adcock, formerly of Hunstanton received his medical education at Guy's Hospital, and obtained the diplomas of L.R.C.P. Edin. and L.S.A. in 1869; and of M.R.C.S.Eng. in 1871. He practised first of all at Heacham, Norfolk, and afterwards in London. In 1889 he accepted the appointment of Chief Physician to H F H Mouzaffer-e-din, then Vali of Tabruz, who became Shah of Persia in 1897. He was decorated in 1893 by the late Shah for services during the severe cholera epidemic in I892.

      Medical News The British Medical Journal May 20 1905
      THE Shah has appointed Sir Hugh Adcock, C.M.G., Persian Consul-General at Florence. Sir Hugh Adcock, who is an old student of Guy's Hospital, and is a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (187I), a Licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (I869), and a Licentiate of the Society of Apothecaries (1869), retains the rank of Honorary Consulting Physician to His Majesty. Dr. Schneider, a Frenchman, has been appointed Physician-in-Chief. We understand that the real meaning of these appointments is that Sir Hugh Adcock, who was the Shah's physician for many years, has practically been supplanted by the French practitioner, a fact which is considered to be of some political importance.
