Admin History James Paris Duguid was born on 10 July 1919 in Bo'ness. He was educated at Shirley House, Blackheath, London then Edinburgh Academy and the University of Edinburgh, graduating in 1942. While studying at Edinburgh University, Duguid unlocked the key to how penicillin works. His findings were published in the Edinburgh Medical Journal in 1946 but because they did not reach a wider audience, he did not get the credit he deserved. This was followed by a host of other scientific research, including his groundbreaking finding when he was first to identify one of the most virulent mechanisms for transmitting the bacterial infections E.coli and salmonella. From 1944 to 1962 Duguid worked was a Senior Lecturer and Reader at University of Edinburgh before becoming Professor of Bacteriology at University of St Andrews (1963-1967) and then at University of Dundee (1967-1984). Duguid died in Inverness on 9th March 2012, aged 92
