This obituary of William Ian McDonald by Caroline Richmond contained two errors (BMJ 2007;334:160, 20 Jan, doi: 10.1136/bmj.39097.535093.FA). Firstly, it stated that he was born in 1913; in fact, he was born in 1933. Secondly, we said that in 1995 Anita Harding retired from work. In fact, she died that year (in her early 40s) from disseminated colon cancer, shortly before she was due to take up the chair of clinical neurology at the Institute of Neurology in London.
