Cataloguing the records of the Military Hospital for Head Injuries, St Hugh's College


  • St Hugh’s College Oxford

Project summary

This project repackaged and catalogued the archive of the Military Hospital for Head Injuries at St. Hugh’s College, Oxford. It consists of the case notes of patients treated at the hospital during World War II, together with follow-up research done by neuroscientists Ritchie Russell and Freda Newcombe, and some associated paperwork. The files include over 4,000 X-rays and photographs, punch cards and video tapes, and provide a lifetime picture of individuals, combining their initial treatment during wartime and their post-war rehabilitation and neurological progress.
