Thomas McKeown

Thomas McKeown (1912–1988) was a British physician and medical historian.[1] McKeown argued from 1955 that the population growth of the UK post-1700 was due to economic conditions rather than improved medicine and public health. This became known as the “McKeown thesis”.[2][3]

McKeown attended McGill University before returning across the Atlantic to study at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar.[4][5] From 1945, he was professor of social medicineat the University of Birmingham.[5] He is also known for his work in geriatrics[5] and maternal-fetal medicine
