Kings College, London

According to Kings College London, the Duke of Wellington fought to establish the college in 1829, and if you think they mean it figuratively, you’re wrong. Apparently the Duke, who was also the Prime Minister of England at the time, actually fought a duel in defense of the college.

King’s College London celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2004, and there was a great deal to celebrate. Here are a few of the accomplishments possible because of Kings College attendees:

.      Florence Nightingale helped to establish antiseptic practices in the health care profession.

.      Charles Wheatstone developed wireless telegraphy.

.      Charles Lister established antiseptic surgical practices.

.      Nobel Prize Winner, James Black developed beta-blocker and anti-ulcer medicine.

.      Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins work led to the discovery of the structure of DNA.

 

Today Kings College, London is one of the oldest and largest colleges of the University of London with almost 14,000 undergraduate students, and more than 5300 postgraduate students covering 9 schools of study.
