“Professor Hayes was of a retitring disposition, somewhat shy, at times impetuous and quick tempered, but it was soon over. His teaching was thorough, dogmatic, and practical, and was much appreciated by the students.

In later years, ‘Tommy Hayes’ used to wear his top hat while doing his ward rounds. It was regarded by the students as one of the sights of the Hospital to see ‘Tommy’ examining his patients in his hat!” Ref: *2
