2. Sir Victor Horsley - An Inspiration (The BMJ, December 21, 2006). "You probably know nothing of this extraordinary late Victorian and Edwardian age surgeon, but you should. Horsley contributed on so many different fronts: pioneering neurosurgeon, ardent experimenter, medical politician, social reformer, and author. If you ever need a doctor as a role model, a medical figure of international importance who was also a vocal social conscience, look no further." (Submitted on October 27, 2017.)
