    Notes 
    • Obituary. The death of Frank A Spreat, F.R.C.S., which occurred on April 24th, came as a great shock to his medical colleagues and many friends. Although it was known that he had not been in good health for some time, his death occurred very suddenly. Frank Arthur Spreat, who was 72 years of age, was educated at the Aldenham School and St. Bartholomew's Hospital. Qualifying in 1884, he settled in practice in Friern Barnet very shortly afterwards, and for a good many years was one of the best-known practitioners in North London. Dr. Spreat was a man of most unbounded energy, and performed the somewhat remarkable feat of passing his first and final Fellowship examinations of the Royal College of Surgeons after the age of 40, and also taking his D.P.H. while in general practice. During the greater part of his professional life he made a point of attending one of the teaching hospitals one day a week, and even when he was nearly 60 years of age he still continued to take special courses in clinical work. Dr. Spreat held many public appointments. He was medical officer and public vaccinator for the Friern Barnet district, medical officer for the maternity and child welfare centres under the Middlesex County Council, and he was also medical officer to the Post Office. For many years he was medical officer of health to the Friern Barnet district, during which time he kept himself thoroughly conversant with the ever-increasing public health problems, and was the means of instituting many admirable reforms. For over forty years he was a member of the British Medical Association,, in which he had always taken the greatest interest, and he had been chairman of the Finchley Division. Dr. Spreat was greatly respected by all the medical men with whom he came into contact, and his loss will be much felt by his fellow practitioners. He married Miss Edith Hulke, daughter of the late Dr. Hulke of Deal, and she survives him with a son and a daughter. His younger son was lost in the war. [British Medical Journal, 12 May 1934]
