- Anthony Storr
Anthony Storr (
18 May 1920– 17 March 2001) was an English psychiatristand author. Born in London, he was a child who was to endure the typical trauma of early 20th century boarding schools. He was educated at Winchester, Christ's College, the University of Cambridgeand Westminster Hospital. He qualified as a doctor in 1944, and subsequently specialized in psychiatry.
Storr grew up to be kind and insightful, yet, as his obituary states, he was "no stranger to suffering" and was himself allegedly prone to the frequent bouts of depression his mother had.
Today, Anthony Storr is known for his psychoanalytical portraits of historical figures.
