Lieutenant-Colonel Henry Kirkpatrick (1871–1958) was interested in ophthalmology from fairly early in his career. His career in the Indian Medical Service provided opportunities – through work in the General Hospital, Madras, the university and the Government Ophthalmic Hospital – to improve teaching and postgraduate training in pathology and ophthalmology. On retiring from Madras he was ophthalmic surgeon to the Tropical Diseases Hospital and lecturer in ophthalmology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
A bequest to the School, by Lieutenant-Colonel Henry Kirkpatrick’s daughters Elsie and Daphne Kirkpatrick, endowed funding to set up scholarships ‘for the promotion and encouragement of study in the ophthalmic section’ in memory of their father.Table of Content
