Dr Owen Lankester

Person  Male  Born 26/10/1869  Died 25/12/1933

Chairman of the East End Maternity Hospital, 1902 - 1933. His obituary in Medical News 6 January 1934 tells us:  Born Alfred Owen Lankester, brother to (the later) Sir Ray Lankester.  Died at home in Upper Wimpole Street.  He is described as having "great height, massive build and hearty manner" - we really wish we could find a picture.

2021: We wrote that back in 2014 and now Christine Wagg, "quite a distant relation", of Lankester has kindly sent a photo and we can see that Lankester meets his description.
