Lt-Col Henry Kirkpatrick Scholarship 2023; Lieutenant Colonel Henry Kirkpatrick’s daughters, Elsie and Daphne Kirkpatrick, bequeathed to the school funds to establish scholarships “for the promotion and encouragement of study in the ophthalmic section” in memory of their father.

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 in Madras, the university, and the Government Ophthalmic Hospital—to improve teaching and postgraduate training in pathology and ophthalmology. On retiring from Madras, he was an ophthalmic surgeon at the Tropical Diseases Hospital and a lecturer in ophthalmology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
