Edwin Chadwick (1800-1890) was a British medical doctor who was convinced that living conditions influenced the chance of disease and death and was a strong proponent of social reform to benefit public health. Fresh clean water, sewage and water closets were improvements that Chadwick had proposed.
Chadwick became the first president of the Association of Public Sanitary Inspectors, the predecessor to the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.
