Dr Anthony Hordern was born in Bridlington, Yorkshire, England in 1925 and completed his medical degree at the University of Edinburgh in 1947. Shortly after graduating, he was called to national service as a medical officer in the Royal Air Force before entering the field of psychiatry in 1951.
His medical career spanned five decades, and Dr Hordern will be remembered as a Fellow of the Royal Colleges of Physicians in London, Edinburgh and Australia.
In 1956 he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to practice psychiatry in the United States, and in 1963 he was subsequently appointed Chief of Research in the State Department of Mental Hygiene at Sacramento, California. Between 1965 and 1976, Dr Hordern was a Consultant Psychiatrist at King’s College Hospital, London, and a Recognized Teacher of Psychological Medicine in the University of London. During this period, he also co-founded the British Academy of Psychopharmacology, which is now known as the British Association for Psychopharmacology.
Dr Hordern emigrated with his wife Anthea to Sydney in 1976 and took the position of Emeritus Consultant in Psychiatry, Sydney Hospital while practicing as a Private Consultant in Psychiatry in Chatswood.
Dr Hordern has written three books and three medical films, and authored over 60 scientific articles dealing with chemical abreaction, psychotherapy, the management of chronic schizophrenia, the treatment of depression and the history of psychiatry.
A family lineage prepared by the Royal College of Arms, circa 1926 for Sir Samuel Hordern (1876-1956, distant cousin) confirms a full family history dating back to Roger de Hordern of Yeldersley, co. Derby, 13th century.
