In the constantly moving story of human endeavour and experience, there occur, or appear to occur, periods when the pace of change is accelerated and when, during a comparatively short space of time events of deep significance arise. The 89 years of Herbert McLean Evans’s life (1882-1971) would seem to cover such a period. As one of the actors of the endocrine scene of the first half of the twentieth century, he strikes us with the startling impact of his vivid personality.
