Baldwin Hamey, Senior (1568–1640), was a successful physician and a licentiate of the RCP. Hamey was born at Bruges and studied at Leiden and after an unusually extended course of study, he took the degree of Doctor of Medicine. About this time, the professors in that university were requested to select from among their graduates a fitting person for the office of physician to the Russian Tsar, Theodore Ivanowitz.
