Gowers himself wrote that the 20 years from 1870–90 were devoted almost entirely to his work. He made few new friends although, as described later, he was always a most dedicated and thoughtful father. Before the story returns to more personal aspects of his life, however, it must focus on the quality of his work and the achievements that made his name as a neurologist—as a clinician, a researcher, and a teacher.
