Short biography
A story, probably apochryphal, is told of McMinn, giving a pre-examination revision lecture on the courses of the cranial nerves, a bete-noir for non-anatomically inclined medical students, changing, without any comment, the colour of his blackboard chalk for just one of the twelve nerves. The fortunate listeners found a question on that nerve in the exam paper.

If true, the tale shows that the Professor wanted to reward attendance as well as recognising that few doctors (and fewer of their patients) are ever inconvenienced by a lack of detailed knowledge of cranial nerve anatomy.
