Professor Jimmy Williamson RIP

TB Alert is saddened to hear of the passing of Professor Jimmy Williamson, who worked with our late Honorary President Sir John Crofton on a pioneering treatment for TB. Professor Williamson died in June 2013, aged 92, after a distinguished career which included treating the author George Orwell for TB. Between 1954 and 1957, he worked under Sir John Crofton as part of the team whose triple therapy treatment for TB is still used today.
