History of the FitzPatrick lecture
The lecture was founded by a gift from Mrs Agnes Letitia FitzPatrick in 1901, in memory of her husband Dr Thomas FitzPatrick who passed away in 1900. The FitzPatrick lecture delivered annually on the subject of “The history of medicine” and the first lecture was held in 1903.
Dr Thomas FitzPatrick was born in Virginia, a small Irish country town and graduated at Trinity College in Dublin. He was a noted linguist who joined the East India Company as an assistant surgeon, served in Bengal and returned to London after an illness, where he practiced in Sussex Gardens. He wrote about the social and sanitary conditions of the labouring classes in Ireland.
