Administrative/Biographical history:

Eliza Millard MacLoghlin was born in 1863. She was a generous benefactor to the College. Her husband was Edward Percy Plantagenet MacLoghlin MRCS (1855-1904), a general practitioner from Lancashire. They were noted as free-thinkers and prominent atheists. After his death, Eliza commissioned a memorial to her husband. The sculptor was Sir Alfred Gilbert, and the sculpture Mors Janua Vitae was completed in 1909. It now stands in the entrance hall at the Royal College of Surgeons of England and contains the cremated remains of both Mr and Mrs MacLoghlin. Eliza MacLoghlin also endowed a scholarship for medical students of the College, and donated the Carrera marble floor in the entrance hall.
