William Hunter (1718–1783) was a Scottish-born anatomist, surgeon and midwife who became ‘perhaps the best teacher of anatomy that ever lived’. He ran a surgical and midwifery practice in London, investigating the female reproductive system by dissecting animals. He lectured on surgery and later anatomy, which became his chief interest. Hunter built up a busy practice and was appointed physician-extraordinary to the Queen.
