Sir Douglas Andrew Kilgour Black (1913–2002) is best known for his influential 1980 'Black Report', which found that social deprivation was a big reason for health inequality. Black studied medicine at St Andrews University before working at Dundee Royal Infirmary. In 1942 he joined the Royal Army Medical Corps and was posted to Sierra Leone and India. When he returned to England in 1946 he became lecturer and later professor of medicine at Manchester University.
