Dr Christopher Clayson attended medical school at the University of Edinburgh and was diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis shortly after his final examination, resulting in two years of treatment in Southfield Sanatorium under the care of Sir Robert Philip. He was appointed Medical Superintendent at Lochmaben Sanitorium, Dumfries in 1943 where he introduced successful treatments for tuberculosis. Clayson was on the Council of the College from 1960 to 1965 and was President from 1966 to 1970. He later became Chairman of the Scottish Council for Postgraduate Medical Education.
