    A son of William Horn of Forest Hill, he was educated at the City of Westminster School and St. Mary's Hospital. He graduated B.Sc.Lond (with honours) in 1896, M.B. in 1899 and M.D. in 1906; and obtained the D.T.M. of Cambridge in 1907 and the M.R.C.P. diploma in 1919.

    During the South African War he was a civilian surgeon attached to the Field Force. He joined the West African Medical Service in 1904 and served on the Gold Coast, in North and South Nigeria, and in Gambia, and received the thanks of the Secretary of State for the Colonies for his report on cerebrospinal fever in the Northern Territory of the Gold Coast (1908), and for his report on sleeping sickness in the Volta River District of the Gold Coast (1910). He was seconded for special service in 1910-12 and was appointed personal assistant to the Principal Medical Officer, Nigeria, in 1913. His next post was that of senior M.O. and member of the Executive and Legislative Council of Gambia.

    In 1920 he was attached to the Rockefeller Commission for Investigating Yellow Fever, and in the following year he became Director of Medical and Sanitary Commission of the Colonial Office. Two years later he succeeded Sir William Prout as Medical Adviser to the Colonial Office, and in 1928 became Consulting Physician. He was created C.M.G. in 1922 and received a Knighthood in 1937.

    Sir Arthur Horn joined the British Medical Association in 1902; he was president of the 5th Congress of the Far East Association for Tropical Medicine in 1923. In addition to his official reports he contributed papers to the Lancet on the health of Europeans in West and in East Africa.
