Biography

William DOVE

William Dove was educated at Harrow and received private education before going to Christ’s College, Cambridge in 1890 where he obtained his BA in 1893 and MA in 1897 when he also became a physician at the London Hospital before later working at the Hendon Hospital and Victoria Memorial Cottage Hospital in Leatherhead. His late father was a doctor before him.

At Cambridge Dove was a good long distance runner but was also a member of their golf society and later, as a member of the Northwood Golf Club, represented Great Britain at the 1900 Olympics but his score of 186 for two rounds was 11 shots off a medal place and he finished in seventh place. He later was a member of the Minchinhampton Golf Club and won many club tournaments. During World War I he served as a Captain in the Royal Army Medical Corps and after the War he had a medical practice at Leatherhead in Surrey where he was also well known as an active member of the local community, serving on many committees.
