This announcement contained Atkinson's name as a member of the faculty, as a matriculant for 1904-1905 and as a graduate of 1904-1905. These items are here photographically reproduced in miniature:
The letter handed the witness was from the secretary of "St. Mary's Hospital Medical School (University of London)," and read: "Dear Sir:—In reply to your letter of the 19th inst. I beg to inform you that the name of Thomas G. Atkinson does not appear upon the roll of Lecturers on Physiology who have held office at this school."
The letter handed the witness was from the secretary of the "Medical Defence Union" of London, and read in part: "Dear Sir:-I have been making further enquiries re Atkinson and find that Thomas George Atkinson is not, and never has been, L.R.C.P.Lond., and further, that an exhaustive search has been made by the Authorities at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School, and no trace can be discovered of this person ever having been either Teacher or Student."
