The medical Inkling - Robert "Humphrey" Havard

Over at The Notion Club Papers; I've republished a paper from 2009 in which I give an account of Robert Havard (aka Humphrey, the Red Admiral and UQ = Useless Quack) who was the medical Inkling (and the doctor to both JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis). In it, I examine a paper Havard published in the Journal of Physiology of 1926; comtrasting its style and methods with those prevalent some 80 years later.
