Abstract

The bronze sculpture of The Surgeon by Andor Meszaros, as shown on the front cover of this issue, is a scale model of a larger sandstone statue that stands at the left of the entrance to the King George V Hospital (KGVH) in Sydney. The late Sir Herbert Schlink commissioned the sculpture in 1944. The smaller bronze sculpture stood in the garden of Sir Herbert and Lady Schlink (Meg Mulvey, obstetrician) at ‘Marara’, Careel Bay, in the northern beaches area of Sydney for 60 years. After the death of Meg Mulvey in 2001, members of her family decided to donate The Surgeon to The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) in her memory. It was officially unveiled by President Andrew Child and Andrew Buchanan, a nephew of Meg Mulvey, at a ceremony at College House in July 2004. Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, Andrew Buchanan said that ‘after 60 years in the salt air of Sydney's northern beaches he [ The Surgeon ] obviously needs a sea change’. It seems entirely appropriate that The Surgeon has now been returned to his original home in Melbourne where he was created. He now stands on
