Plarr's Lives of the Fellows Online is a biographical register of the Fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Victor Plarr (1863-1929), college librarian, produced the first two volumes which were published after his death in 1930. The ninth volume was published in 2005, taking the total number of biographies published to over 5,000, covering all those Fellows (FRCS) who died between 1844 and 2002.
Records for all deceased former presidents are now available online, and we are in the process of loading their portraits. As yet only a small proportion of other Fellows have entries in the database, but we are currently adding those who have died since 2002.
If you are a current Fellow and would like to provide us with updated details of your career, please send us a CV or fill in a Lives of the Fellows form (DOC format, PDF format) and return it to the college.
We hope you will find the information useful. If you have any comments please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
