Henry Havelock Ellis, known as Havelock Ellis (2 February 1859 – 8 July 1939), was a British physician and psychologist, writer, and social reformer who studied human sexuality. He was co-author of the first medical textbook in English on homosexuality in 1897, and also published works on a variety of sexual practices and inclinations, including transgender psychology. He is credited with introducing the notions of narcissism and autoeroticism, later adopted by psychoanalysis. As a contemporary progressive thinker, he supported eugenics and served as president of the Galton Institute.
