Alexander Monro "secundus" (1733-1817), younger son of Alexander Monro ''primus'' (1697-1767), graduated as Doctor of Medicine from Edinburgh University in 1755. That same year he became joint Professor of Anatomy with his father, remaining in post until 1808. From 1798, he shared the Professorship with his son Alexander Monro "tertius" (1773-1859). In 1820 he donated his collection of anatomical preparations to the University, along with that of his father, to create the University's Anatomical Museum.
