The material in this sub-series is divided broadly into four sections:
I Coll-32/B.1 - B.36. The development of neuro-surgery in Edinburgh and Dott’s part in establishing it as a recognised discipline 1929-38
(Coll-32/B.1-B.10); including papers relating to the work of Dott and his Brain Injuries Unit during the Second World War (Coll-32/B.11-B.16), and his service on The Brain Injuries Committee and other war service (Coll-32/B.17-B.36). See also Coll-32/H.34.
II Coll-32/B.37 - B.48. University of Edinburgh Faculty of Medicine; committees on medical education, staffing ratios, curriculum, etc. 1955-1965.
(Dott’s lectures given for the Faculty of Medicine appear in Section Coll-32/C.)
III Coll-32/B.49 - B.62. Planning and building of the new Royal Infirmary and especially the Department of Surgical Neurology, 1955-61.
Because of the academic and administrative links between the University, the Hospital and Regional Boards there is of necessity some overlap between II and III.
IV Coll-32/B.63 - B.67. Miscellaneous University of Edinburgh Committee and offices served by Dott.
