John Polidori, author of The Vampyre, was hired as Lord Byron’s personal physician and secretary. Polidori received his doctorate at only 19, one of the youngest recorded graduates of the University of Edinburgh where he studied mesmerism and wrote his thesis on sleepwalking. …Polidori’s nephew, Michael William Rossetti…published the diary his uncle had written in Switzerland chronicling the eventful summer of 1816 at the Villa Diodati where both The Vampyre and Frankenstein were conceived.
