Founded by a gift from Mrs Agnes Letitia FitzPatrick, received in 1901, confirmed by deed 1930 – in memory of her husband Dr Thomas FitzPatrick MRCP (1832–1900): £2,000 to endow a lectureship in ‘The History of Medicine’, the precise subject to be announced beforehand and the lectures to be printed and published in a separate book. The suggestion of the lecture topic was by Dr FitzPatrick’s close friend Sir Norman Moore. This was originally two lectures for the College but this appears to have ceased in 1975.
The lectures are delivered by a fellow of the RCP appointed by the president and censors. The same fellow may be appointed 2 years in succession, but not again until an interval of at least 1 year has elapsed.
