Abstract

Frank Fitchett was the Professor of Clinical Medicine and Therapeutics at the University of Otago, from 1919 to 1936. His father was the Anglican Dean of Dunedin, while his younger brother became Bishop of Dunedin. As well as being an outstanding physician, Fitchett had wide interests that included literature and art. He was one of the most respected teachers in the history of the Otago Medical School. Just noticeable in the bookplate pasted in this sports mystery novel by Wallace, the ‘King of Thrillers’, are the initials ‘CW’. This may well be the artist, who to date remains unidentified.
