Alex Comfort

British scientist and physician, Alexander Comfort was born on 10 February, 1920 (today he would have turned 93 years old!). He was an author of both fiction and non-fiction stories, as well as a gerontologist, anarchist, pacifist, and conscientious objector. Comfort was educated at Highgate School in London. While a student there, Comfort was convinced that he could come up with a superior concoction of gunpowder. In the course of his experiments, he ended up blowing up his left hand, of which only the thumb remained. (Later in life, he claimed that his left hand proved "very useful for performing uterine inversions".) He entered Trinity College at Cambridge University to study medicine. (pre-clinical study leading to a BA, upgraded in 1944 to an MA) and the London Hospital (now known as the Royal London Hospital), qualifying in 1944 with both the Conjoint diplomas of Royal College of Physicians (LRCP) London, Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS) England and the Cambridge MB BChir degrees. All in all, he accrued six degrees. Comfort served as a House Physician at the London Hospital and went on to become a lecturer in physiology at the London Hospital Medical College. In 1945 he obtained the Conjoint Board's Diploma in Child Health, and progressed to a PhD in 1950 and a DSc of University College, London in 1963.
