Sir Henry Littlejohn (1826-1914) was an outstanding Edinburgh medical man. After graduating in medicine from Edinburgh University he obtained the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons, became Police Surgeon and then Medical Officer of Health. He managed to convince the town council, which was almost bankrupt at the time, to inaugurate proper sanitation throughout Edinburgh and later to build a fever hospital – the former City Hospital. His daughter, Mrs Perry, was married to the Very Rev Perry who was rector of St.Cuthbert’s from 1929 – 1939.
