John Hull Grundy was born in Southall in 1907. He studied art at King's College London and the Chelsea School of Art before working for the Royal College of Art. The start of World War Two drew him into the world of medicine, and he developed his drawing of the body with anatomical studies made for the Royal College of Surgeons and the Orpington War Hospital. In 1942, he began as lecturer in Entomology at the Royal Army Medical College in London, a post he kept until his retirement in 1967. On his retirement, he was named a member of the British Empire (MBE). His artwork on insects is much more widely known than his work on human anatomy.
