Baba, Hajee

  • Person
  • ?-1843

Student at St George's 1817, possibly the first Muslim student at the institution, and one of the first Iranian medical practitioners to study in Europe in this period. He came to England to study medicine alongside another young Iranian, Muhammad Kazim (Mohammed Cassim), in 1811 with the British ambassador to Iran, Sir Harford Jones. Hajee Baba was the son of an officer in the Shah’s army, and the sending of students to study in Britain was a way of strengthening the diplomatic ties and connections between the countries. His brother also trained as a mining engineer in Russia. Kazim was to study arts, but died shortly after their arrival in England.

Hajee Baba stayed in England for eight years. Following his studies, Hajee Baba returned to Iran to work as a physician in the court in Teheran. He also worked as an interpreter for Persian missions abroad. Eventually he became the chief physician to the shah.

He may have been the inspiration for a series of best-selling novels, ‘The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan’ (1824-28) by James Justinian Morier, secretary to Sir Harford Jones; Hajee Baba was reportedly annoyed at Morier’s use of his name for this purpose.
