Now one of the world’s leading academic institutions, the college grew considerably in the 1990s after amalgamating with such famous teaching hospitals as Guy’s and St Thomas’s.
King’s was founded in 1829 as a conservative, Christian-based institution. Its aim was to counteract the progressive humanistic ideas that lay behind UCL of 1827, the first college of what was to be the new University of London.
As for those other names yet to appear on that impressive display, they include the Irish-born Hollywood actress, Greer Garson, who studied French in the 1920s.
Her red-haired beauty graced such classic movies as ‘Goodbye Mr Chips’; ‘Random Harvest’ - and that Hollywood idea of British stoicism during the Blitz in the form of Mrs Miniver.
William Henry Pratt studied for the consular service at King’s and dropped out in 1909, seeking fame and fortune elsewhere. He found it - in another continent, under another name and layers of makeup - in the form of the cinema’s most famous man-made creature.
