Sir Robert Bentley Todd, Statue, King's College Hospital, Denmark Hill
Todd, a standing bare-headed figure in robes, points with his right hand to a document held in his left hand. At his feet are some books. The marble base is raised on a cylindrical pedestal and square step, all of the same material.
The statue was originally erected in the Great Hall of the old King's College Hospital, near Lincoln's Inn Fields.
First erected 1863, inside the Hospital's Great Hall, in the Strand. Moved here with the Hospital 1913. Of course Noble did not select his stone for life in the open air but the statue is terribly worn.
Todd (1809-60) was one of the founders of the hospital in 1839.
In incised blackened letters in recessed panel, on front of cylindrical pedestal: ROBERT BENTLEY TODD. F.R.C.P. F.R.S. / 1809 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 1860
