Robert Hooper (1773–1835) studied medicine at London, Oxford and St Andrews universities, and became a successful teacher of the practice of medicine. He settled in London, and for many years taught a large class. He was also interested in pathological anatomy, and accumulated a large and very valuable collection of morbid specimens. Hooper was a man of immense industry, a sound practical physician, and a good writer, and was well respected by his contemporaries.
