Collection of audio recordings by Bryan Brook & Terry Gould 1989

The collection consists of audio recordings of staff at St George's Hospital and Medical School. Each interview is recorded on audio cassette and is accompanied by a synopsis of the interview (no transcription).

The accompanying notes state that the collection was established to create 'a picture of a teaching hospital in the westend of London with a small intake and no preclinical department, in transition to a large and complete university hospital and in transposition to a south London suburb - Tooting. No attempt has been made to select those considered by contemporaries to be of distinction since it is not possible to predict who will appear to have been distinguished in the eyes of the future: conversely there has been no avoidance of the contemporarily distinguished. [...] Since two reminiscences go back before WWI and span both wars, this audioarchive will, at the outset, have covered almost the whole of the twentieth century.'
