No one made a greater contribution to the control of tuberculosis than John Wenman Crofton. His early post-war work at the Postgraduate Medical School, London and the Brompton Hospital with the Medical Research Council trials of streptomycin was followed by his inspirational leadership of the Edinburgh team which established the proper use of combination anti-tuberculous chemotherapy. Born in Dublin, Crofton was educated at Cambridge University and St Thomas's Hospital where he graduated in 1937.
