                A voice from a young surgeon

                The adventures of a medical student

1857's entry included:

Reply from The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh after enquiring about Dr Wardley's qualifications:

Thank you for your enquiry regarding Dr Richard Sheridan Wardley. I hope you don't mind me sending the results via email.

I have now carried out a full and comprehensive search of our archive and historical records  for information regarding this gentleman, but I regret that I have been unable to find any information whatsoever about him, other than that which you outlined in your original request. It is almost certain that he was neither a Fellow or Licentiate of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, and we hold no obituaries, sketches or biographical information regarding him. I also checked UK Medical Registers from 1860 (our earliest edition) to the turn of the century without success.  Internet keyword and medical history database searches have also proved fruitless.

I am very sorry that on this occasion The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh has been unable to assist you further in this matter. It is most unusual for a search of this nature to provide so little information. I have, however, included at the foot of this message a list of further resources for historical researchers, which may prove of some use. Also, if you come across any further information regarding Dr Wardley's life which you feel may help us to assist you, please do not hesitate to contact me. In such a case I will gladly carry out a subsequent search free of charge.

Kind regards

Reply from University of Toronto Archives after enquiring about Dr Wardley's qualifications:

Dear Ms Young,

This is in responce to your e-mail regarding information on a Dr. Richard Sheridan Wardley, said to have graduated in 1850 from Medicine.

From 1843-1853, King's College, the predecessor to the University of Toronto, ran a medical school and granted degrees. I have checked are list of graduates which is really our only source for very early graduates and did not find a Richard Sheridan Wardley listed even though there are other graduates listed for this time period. Since no student records, or calendars have survived for this period, I can offer no other source to confirm his degree. I can't even tell you if he attended. Nor can I assure you that the published list of graduates, which I consulted, is completely accurate. Unfortunately there is nothing more I can say except that it is possible he received a degree but he does not show up on the list.

Best of luck in tracking down your information.

Yours sincerely

COPIES OF TESTIMONIALS

G. Kuhlmey, Mus. Dir.

Agra, August 1884

Herr Gustav Kuhlmey came to India some 20 months ago at my suggestion, having been strongly recommended to me by an eminent London musical firm.  The Officers of my old Regiment the 29th P. N. I., had asked me to send them a Band-Master, and results fully show how excellent was the selection I made.

I am personally aware that Herr Kuhlmey's exertions have elicited the approval of every officer of his Regiment and from my own knowledge I can say that in 20 months he has worked wonders in the face of many obstacles as fourloughs, camps of exercise, &c.  He has converted an untuneful rabble into a disciplined, harmonious, intelligible Orchestra and fortunate will be the band that next obtains his services.

F. W. CHATTERTON, MAJOR,

Cantonment Magistrate.

 Herr Kuhlmey has now been over four years bandmaster of the 29th P. Infantry and the excellent state into which he has brought the Band proves his capabilities as an Instructor and conductor.  He is a thorough musician and takes an immense interest in his work.  His habits are perfectly sober and he is thoroughly trustworthy in every respect.

PESHAWAR:                       E. BEDDY, LT. COL.,

    8th January 1887.                             Commanding, 29th P Infantry.

I have much pleasure in certifying to the ability, zeal and attention shown by Herr Kuhlmey, as Band-Master of the 29th Punjab Infantry, when stationed under my command at Peshawar.  It was to me always a treat in music to hear their Band under Herr Kuhlmey's direction and the marvellious results with a Band of purely Natives shows the great attainments of the Instructor.  Herr Kuhlmey also for a time directed the Band of the 60th Royal Rifles and was equally successful.

MEEAN MEER,                    HUGH GOUGH, MAJOR GENL

24th January 1889.

I have much pleasure in certifying to the very great success which has attended the connection of Herr G. Kuhlmey as Band-Master with the Band of the Presidency Volunteers, which is also the Town Band.  Within a few months of his appointment as it's conductor, he fully justified his election for the post by raising the Band to such a high state of efficiency as it had never attained; which marked change for the better was universally admitted in the Town.  In addition to his being a first class musician, he is very painstaking, and thoroughly steady: and I much wish that I could see the prospects of the Band continuing under his able instruction for a much longer period.

CALCUTTA,                                                        YAS. LACKERSTEEN, MAJOR,

  3rd October 1889.                                                               Offg. Comdg. Presidt. Volunteer,

                                                and Hon. Secretary, Town Band.

DORUNDA,

10th September 1890

I have known Herr Kuhlmey for the last seven years and have great pleasure in certifying to the excellent manners in which he instructed and conducted the Band of the 29th Punjab Infantry, my former regiment.  Of his musical attainments it is needless for me to express an opinion, but I know him to be highly talented and a most painstaking, conscientious and upright man, and I feel sure that any work he may undertake, will, at all times, be both carefully and successfully carried out.

V. W. TREGEAR, COLONEL,

Commanding, 9th Bengal Infantry. 

A few Press-notices:

"Indian Daily News" 26-5-87. - The Volunteer Band -We should do an injustice to the Band Committee and the Band itself if we failed to notice the marked improvement that has taken place in their playing since the Band was placed under it's new master, Herr Kuhlmey.  From the very first night of the change, it was evident that the Committee had obtained the service of a Band-Master who was capable of lifting his performers out of the hum drum style of playing which has been too long tolerated.  The bad playing has often been imputed to bad instruments.  But under Herr Kuhlmey's magic wand, it has been shown that it was not the instruments only that accounted for indifferent music.  The Band-Master has evidently "music in his soul" and has the faculty of awakening some response in the souls of his men(The above appeared 10days after I took charge of the Band.  G. K.)

"Englishman" 6-7-87. - We run the risk of being told that adulation has "run riot" with us, but we cannot conclude a notice of this most successful concert without a distinct allusion to the playing of the Band, and to the master hand to which the excellence of their performances is due.  It was well nigh impossible to realize that the men, who but a few weeks ago failed to attract an audience much in excess of the children and their ayahs so intelligently played music of such masters as Schubert and Mozart, but the secret was easy to discover.  One had but to watch that baton to realise whence the life, the delicacy, the expression, the soul came.  All honor to Herr Kuhlmey, he his a thorough artist and we hope the public will hasten to see this and to make the most of him  We believe we are right tin saying that Colonel Chatterton, so to say, "discovered" the Herr when in London some years ago, and brought him out to India for a regiment.  If this was so, it must be a source of gratification to the Colonel to see how successful his discovery is.

"Annual Report", Calcutta Vol. 87-88. (Col. Chatterton)  A complete set of instruments was obtained from the best English makers, but a far more important addition has lately been made in the engagement of a Director of the Band, whose qualifications are, I venture to assert, second to those of no Band-Master in the country.

"Pioneer" 26-7-87. - The Sorcerer at Calcutta:

That the musical part of the work was in safe hands was evident when Herr Kuhlmey, the accomplished conductor of the Town Band, was seen in the conductor's seat.

"Indian Daily News" 30-12-87 - The Volunteer Band since Herr Kuhlmey took charge, is one of which Calcutta may be justly proud.

"Englishman"30-12-87 - The improvement in the playing of the band during the past few months has been both rapid and steady, but it may be doubted whether many of the audience were prepared for a performance of Rossini's masterpiece so admirable as that with which the concert opened.  It was played with extreme delicacy and brilliance and elicited warm approbation from the audience.

"Englishman" 8-6-88 - The Royal Bengal Academy of Music has conferred upon Mr. Gustav Kuhlmey, Musical Director, the title of Sangita-Acharyn, or Professor of Music, the diploma being accompanied by a handsome gold armlet or badge bearing an inscription to that effect.  Mr. Kuhlmey is the only musician in Calcutta who has received the distinction, a former recipient having been Herr Mack.  All who know the thoroughly good work that Mr. Kuhlmey has done for music during his residence in Calcutta will be glad to hear that his efforts have been recognised in a quarter where excellence is regarded with critical appreciation.  To take a recent instance of his zeal in a musical score cause, it may be stated that Mr. Kuhlmey held over a score of rehearsals of 'Patience' before the piece was ever put upon the stage and of course his cares and toils did not terminate till the fall of the curtain on the last performance.

"Englishman" August 1888 - Mainly through the untiring exertions of the present Director, Herr Kuhlmey, the Band is admitted by all to have ere this fully realised the great results predicted by Col. Chatterton, when he placed it on it's present footing about a year ago, and stated in an appeal to the Municipal Corporation for a contribution, that "Calcutta will in six months possess a band of which it will be proud"-(Hon. Secretary Vol. Band).

"Englishman" September 5th, 1888-But it is generally admitted that we have now got together for the first time a band worthy of Calcutta.

"Statesman" 26-2-91- Herr Kuhlmey's Farewell Concert.

If one of the most artistic of the current musical season, the concert at the Town Hall on Monday last, when Herr Gustav Kuhlmey made his farewell bow to a Calcutta audience, was yet tinged with a certain sadness.  Like Jessica, we are never merry when we hear sweet music, and perhaps no more pathetic made of taking his farewell could have been devised by Herr Kuhlmey, than through the medium of sweet sound.  With a changing population like ours, separation of course may be expected: our air is not only, as the poet says, "full of farewells to the dying and mournings for the dead" but we have the hourly partings and abrupt terminations of pleasantess intercourse and dearest friendships.  It is in the nature of things Indian, and yet we cannot regard but with regret the removal from our midst of the talented musician who presided over the concert on Monday night.  He, more than almost any other, has helped appreciably to relieve the tedium of exile and to remove from the heart the weight of care by sweet music, nightly, and the departure has all the force of a personal loss.

Few who have lived here a short term of years can fail to have noticed the immense difference in the quality of the Town Band now and what it was only a few years ago.  We have no desire to magnify the present by be-littling the past; but there was a time not long ago when it needed no higher evidence to know how "some sweet music is when time is broke and no proportion kept" than a stroll at sundown through the Eden Gardens.  Considering the bad training of the old musicians, the difficulty of eradicating deeprooted ignorance and the utter distrust they had inspired in their breasts of their hearers, the reconstitution of the Town Band was a labor which the most sanguine would not have taken with great hopes of success.  Patience, perseverance, and musical ability of a high order have, however, achieved what at one time appeared insuperable.  Subscriptions alone being insufficient for the support of the Town Band, the Volunteers took over the staff and maintained it partly from regimental funds, and partly from donations by the public.  But the transfer would only temporarily have saved the musicians from extinction, had not the work of reorganisation fallen into Herr Kuhlmey's hands.  Through heat and cold he has laboured unceasingly, until he has succeeded in transforming what was at one time the worst band in India into one of the best in the east to-day. -- No better instrument of his skill could have been desired than the large gathering at his concert on Monday, though many more would doubtless have been present had the weather proved propitious.  The large number of tickets sold was, however, the best tribute to the esteem in which Herr Kuhlmey is held and the surest proof that could have been given of the public estimation - of Herr Kuhlmey in particular we should like to say more, but we shall close here: we have too heavy a heart to take a tedious leave of him.

"Indian Daily News" February 1891. - Herr Kuhlmey soon made the Town Band the most efficient we have had in Calcutta for many years.  Besides his duty in the Band Stand, and with the Volunteers, he has always been a ready helper in every movement when his services have been in request.  He is an unassuming as a man as he is competent as a musician and he will leave India with many regrets, which he may have the satisfaction of knowing are mutual.

I have known Corporal Wheeler during the past two years as a well behaved, smart soldier and a good rider.

I can thoroughly recommend him as a steady, active, energetic man.

Corporal Wheeler was in my Sqadron under my command during the time (about one year) that I was in the 5th Dragoon Guards.  He was then employed in the Riding School as Rough Riding Corporal.  His character was in every way excellent.  He was a smart soldier, and thoroughly understands the care and management of horses.

Corporal Wheeler was in my troop for nearly four years, he was quite one of the best men in the troop.  I don't think I ever had occasion to find fault with him about anything; he was always well turned out, and did his work cheerfully and well.  He is an excellent rider, very intelligent and honest.
