About this work


Archives of the Institute of Health Education, including administrative files, minutes, mailings to members, correspondence between officers of the Institute, liaison with government bodies and other organisations.

Much of this material had become very disorganised, and therefore the order may not reflect the original order, which it was not possible to reconstruct.
