William Chester Minor was an American surgeon who emigrated to London, and shot a man near Waterloo Bridge. In Broadmoor, he became a prolific contributor to the first Oxford English Dictionary. Simon Winchester's bestseller about Minor was published in the late 1990s.
An alternative biography of Minor can now be found in 'Broadmoor Revealed'.
