Chapter Summary

The few who knew details of Christopherson's Sudan experience were unlikely to have been surprised at his shift in medical specialty, although they might have been surprised that he would choose pulmonary medicine. Sidestepping the ever-present sparring and squabbling that characterized the London School for Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, where some might have expected he would find a home, was probably seen as a fortunate move, in retrospect. While still retaining his interest in tropical medicine with part-time employment at the Special Bilharzia Clinic, Ministry of Pensions, he embarked on a new career with a grand new address for his consultant's rooms. Life at 29 Devonshire Place, his handsome Georgian house in the heart of London's powerful and influential medical neighbourhood, was an achievement to be proud of. He sent a photo of his house to his brother Arthur in Australia.
