Alexander Monro (tertius), Manuscript on Surgery.
Tertius was the last member of the Monro dynasty to attain the Chair of Anatomy, which he held from 1798 to 1846. As in the generation before him, he held the Chair conjointly with his father for some of that time – and not without much hesitation from the Town Council. He took over all the anatomy teaching in 1808. His texts from which he lectured are strikingly similar to the texts he wrote as a student. He was known to read verbatim from the notes, often narrating cases and discoveries of his father.
