1783, Jul 161867, Jul 5
an English surgeon who became President of the Royal College of Surgeons of London and Serjeant Surgeon to the Queen. In his mid thirties he published two books of his lectures which contained pre-Darwinian ideas on man's nature and, effectively, on evolution. He was forced to withdraw the second (1819) book after fierce criticism; the Lord Chancellor ruled it blasphemous. Lawrence's transition to respectability occurred gradually, and his surgical career was highly successful.
