Wilson Fox (1831–1887) is best known for his research on the lungs, and his discovery that tuberculosis was different from ordinary lung inflammation. He trained as a doctor at schools in Edinburgh, Paris, Vienna and Berlin, and worked for a while as physician to the Royal Staffordshire Infirmary. He eventually settled in London, and became professor of pathological anatomy at University College, and physician to University College Hospital. Fox had a consulting practice, and he also taught and carried out his own research.
