Abstract

Russell Brock was a notable pioneer of cardiac surgery, known worldwide for his achievements. He was born in London, educated at Christ’s Hospital School, and entered Guy’s Hospital Medical School at the age of 17. As a medical student, he showed the brilliance and force of character which were to mark his whole career, winning prizes and two gold medals. At the age of 25 he became a Hunterian professor, and a Rockefeller scholarship in 1929 enabled him to work under Evarts Graham in St Louis, which gave him his interest in thoracic surgery. Graham in 1922 had been the first surgeon to operate on mitral stenosis, though without success.
