Dr Robert Knight
Person Male Born 1932 Died 2005
Like Keats Knight trained in medicine at Guy's Hospital. Knight failed to write any acclaimed odes but, unlike Keats, went on to work at Guy's throughout his career as a consultant physician with a special interest in chest diseases and breast cancer. A Keats fan, he was active in the Keats' Society at Guy's and promoted the idea of a Keats statue at the hospital.
