Caption

Portrait after an engraving of Alexander Munro primus (1697-1767), Scottish anatomist. Munro primus was the first of three generations of the family that dominated the teaching of medicine at Edinburgh for 126 years. Munro primus was the founder of the 'Edinburgh School', and was the first professor of anatomy there. Under him, the number of students increased four-fold. His son (secundus) was the most able of the dynasty, showing the relationship between the lymphatic and circulatory systems, and taught 13,404 students in his time. The grandson, Alexander Munro tertius, wrote many texts but made no real anatomical discoveries.
