ÔÇÿDr David Keith Ballow: Colonial Surgeon and Martyr to DutyÔÇÖ by Patrick J Tynan (2008).

Father Pat Tynan, well known Brisbane historian, has recently added a biography of Dr
David Keith Ballow to his list of published works.
Book Review:
BALLOW, DAVID KEITH (1804-1850), medical officer, was born on 27 October 1804 at
Montrose, Scotland, the eldest son of John Ballow. He was educated at Edinburgh University and came to Sydney in 1834. He was appointed assistant surgeon in August 1836 at Invermain (Scone NSW) and transferred to Moreton Bay in December 1838 after serving as assistant surgeon at the Sydney general hospital. Although the convicts were soon withdrawn Ballow had other patients as increasing numbers of settlers came to the district. After the military garrison was recalled and the establishment broken up, Ballow resigned in 1849. The old government hospital on the site of the Supreme Court was reopened as the Brisbane General Hospital. At the first meeting in January 1849, Ballow was appointed one of the trustees and resident surgeon, with the right of private practice. He was also a magistrate and district coroner.
On 8 August 1850 the Emigrant, a Colonial Land and Emigration Commission ship,
arrived in Moreton Bay with sixty-four cases of typhus fever on board. By the time she was put in quarantine at Dunwich, fourteen deaths had already occurred and the ship's surgeon was among the increasing number of victims. Dr Mallon, the health officer, took charge but he was stricken. Ballow then undertook the responsibilities of surgeon superintendent at the quarantine station. He too took the infection and died on 29 September 1850. A tablet on Ballow Chambers, Wickham Terrace, and a tombstone at Dunwich commemorate this 'gallant and jovial Scotsman'.
Ballow was an energetic man of varied interests. He was among the first to grow cotton in Queensland, getting his plants from Dr Thompson, inspector of hospitals in New
South Wales. He discovered and commercialized a chalybeate spring in a tea-tree swamp near Deception Bay. A member of the Church of England, he was one of three patrons elected in accordance with the regulations of the Denominational Schools Board.
Ballow predeceased his wife, Margaret Campbell, youngest daughter of Captain Peter
McArthur of the 6th Royal Veteran Battalion, whom he had married on 21 October 1837.
They had no children.
The book is of considerable interest, not only to the medical profession, but also to
those interested in the history of Brisbane in general.
Any society or reader interested in purchasing a copy may do so by sending a cheque or money order to:-
Pat Tynan,
PO Box 29,
Royal Brisbane Hospital,
Butterfield Street,
Herston,
QLD 4029.
Price $30 , includes postage(Australia), of which $5 goes to the Royal ChildrensÔÇÖ Hospital Foundation.

Incidentally my late uncle, Dr Matthew Eakin, worked as a specialist gynaecologist from his rooms at Ballow Chambers, Wickham Terrace in Brisbane City for over 40 years. A portrait of Dr Eakin hangs on the 6th floor of the Mater MothersÔÇÖ Hospital, painted by William Dargie (later Sir William) and commissioned by the Sisters of Mercy at the Mater Hospital in 1966.
