In remembrance of their father, Lieutenant Colonel Henry Kirkpatrick, Elsie and Daphne Kirkpatrick left a gift to the School that established funds to establish scholarships “for the advancement and development of study in the ophthalmic area.” A relatively early point in his professional life, Lieutenant Colonel Henry Kirkpatrick (1871–1958) demonstrated an interest in ophthalmology.
Through his work in the General Hospital in Madras, the university, and the Government Ophthalmic Hospital, he was given the opportunity to enhance teaching and postgraduate training in the fields of pathology and ophthalmology during the course of his career in the Indian Medical Service. After his retirement from Madras, he took positions as an eye surgeon at the Tropical Diseases Hospital and as a lecturer in ophthalmology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
