Background and education[edit]

Born in London, Storr was educated at Winchester College, Christ's College, Cambridge, and Westminster Hospital.[1][2]


In 1974, Storr moved from private practice to a teaching appointment at the Warneford Hospital in Oxford, until his retirement in 1984.[2]


Storr was, as one of his obituarists observed, "no stranger to suffering".[2] 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.[3]
