Anthony Storr (18 May 1920 – 17 March 2001) was an English psychiatrist, psychoanalyst and author.
Background and education
Born in London, Storr was educated at Winchester College, Christ's College, Cambridge, and Westminster Hospital.
In 1974, Storr moved from private practice to a teaching appointment at the Warneford Hospital in Oxford, until his retirement in 1984.
Storr was, as one of his obituarists observed, "no stranger to suffering". He married twice, to Catherine Cole (who became a children's writer under her married name) in 1942 and writer Catherine Peters in 1970 after the first marriage ended in divorce.
