Dr. William Henry Farrow (20 June 1805? – 17 November 1876) was a physician born and trained in England. Practiced in Montreal and Toronto. Most notable for providing one of the first detailed descriptions of synesthesia, a condition then not yet defined.[1] Farrow reported the details of the illness, (in this case temporary) in an article published in the Lower Canada Journal of Medicine.[2]
