Acquisition note

The collection was originally sent to the Departmental Record Officer of the Ministry of Health by Dr Bradley in 1962. The Public Record Office (now the National Archives), however, decided not to select the papers for permanent preservation, but offered them to the library at Wellcome Collection's Contemporary Medical Archives Centre (now merged into the department of Archives and Manuscripts) as likely to be of specialised interest to historians of medicine. They were received as a gift from the Department of Health and Social Security in January 1984. An additional group of Hutchinson's files, on 'Hospitals', was turned up by Library staff in 1994 among Medical Officer of Health Reports .
