Biography

While at Cambridge, Robert Kennedy won the high jump in the match against Oxford on three successive occasions (1935-37). He shared the Scottish title with John Michie in 1936 and placed second at the AAA Championships in 1938, having earlier won the AAA indoor title. An exponent of the Eastern cut-off style, he topped the British year list in 1937 when he set a personal best while in American with the combined Oxbridge team. On leaving Cambridge, he studied medicine at London University and, after graduating in 1941, he later qualified as a surgeon and practice in Hampstead for many years.
