Grave of Dr. Andrew Duncan, Buccleuch Church graveyard
Following the death of his patient, the poet Robert Fergusson, in 1774, Duncan (b.1744-d.1828) campaigned to improve the institutional care and treatment of the mentally ill. In 1807, he co-founded the Royal Edinburgh Hospital and in 1809 published 'Observations on the Structure of Hospitals for the Treatment of Lunatics'. He also delivered the first forensic medicine lectures in Britain, at the University of Edinburgh and published the quarterly 'Medical and Philosophical Commentaries' in 1773, the first medical review journal published regularly in Great Britain. -- info. courtesy of Wikipedia
