Dr. William MacLean

(c. 1899-?)
“Willy” MacLean had a fairly long list of alpine climbs to his credit before going to Everest in 1933 as doctor’s assistant to Greene. Although he spent much of the time laid low by pneumonia, he managed to reach Camp IV.
As a young man, MacLean served in the Royal Artillery in World War I, qualifying as a general practitioner after the war.
