Administrative/Biographical history:

Dorothy Minnie Newhall was a nurse with one of the British women's units in the Serbian Army in 1915, and a Sanitary Inspector with the Serbian Relief Fund, 1916-1919. The manuscript diary bears the inscription 'Aldo Castellani, Society of Tropical Medicine, 11 Chandos Street, Cavendish Square, London W1', but is written in English and mentions Castellani in the third person (eg on 13 April 1916 'Dr Aldo Castellani arrived tonight'). The diarist's mention of the same colleagues and her return to Beckenham at the end of both this and the manuscript volume suggests that the author was Dorothy Newhall rather than Castellani.
