Administrative/Biographical history:

This item was discovered in the office formerly occupied by the Librarian of the Wellcome Institute and handed over to the Contemporary Medical Archives Centre (now Archives and Manuscripts, Wellcome Library) in March 1984. Its provenance is otherwise obscure.


Scope and content/abstract:

A thick file of unpaginated duplicated material entitled 'Child Health and Environment: Bethnal Green', 1960s, apparently course material distributed in connection with a course in, presumably, child health, at St Bartholomew's Hospital (University House). The material is undated but from references within the text and given in the bibliography would appear to have been compiled in the late 1960s. The approach taken in the course would seem to emphasise the environmental aspect of child health and to take a social medicine perspective. Notes circulated in connection with a course on the above given at St Bartholomew's Hospital during the late 1960s.
