Sir James Black, who lived in Herne Hill, was a Nobel Prize winner whose work saved thousands of lives. For a time, he carried out his research in the building that is now Judith Kerr Primary School.
Sir James is one of seven nominees for this year’s edition of the Southwark Blue Plaques scheme, run by the Southwark News in association with Southwark Heritage Association, Southwark Council. He was nominated by the Friends of Judith Kerr Primary School.
The scheme has commemorated the great and good of our borough by awarding Blue Plaques to over 50 recipients since it began in 2013. It would be wonderful to celebrate a great scientist and a piece of our school building’s history with an official and visible recognition.
