Henry Lawson

 In late 1887, at the age of 20, budding writer Henry Lawson was encouraged to visit the Eye and Ear, to seek treatment from Dr Gray for a childhood hearing problem. Lawson, then based in Sydney, undertook the long trip to Melbourne to visit the clinic due to its growing reputation as a specialist hospital.
