Truth is Ever so Much Grander Than Fiction

No, I did not make the following up.

In the early years of the 20th century there was in Britain a Commissioner for Lunacy (that is strange enough for me right there) whose name was Sir Thomas Clifford Allbutt. See what you can find out when you read books? I do believe that Mr. Allbutt, given his title, surpasses my previous favorite name, another Brit, footballer Dean Windass.
