Killer dust: cataloguing and preserving the asbestos collections at the University of Strathclyde


  • University of Strathclyde

Project summary

This project is to preserve and catalogue four archive collections at the University of Strathclyde. They relate to the struggle to raise awareness of the dangers associated with asbestos exposure. The collections are: the records of the Occupational and Environmental Diseases Association; the papers of journalist Laurie Flynn; the papers of environmental campaigner Alan Dalton; and the Scottish Oral History Centre Archive of oral history recordings. Together, the collections form a unique and rich body of material. Following repackaging, the oral history recordings and accompanying transcripts will be catalogued and made available online.
