About this work


Files created by Simon Shorvon in his capacity as an officer of the ILAE. Most files date from the late 1990s and early 2000s and thus represent his time as Executive Information Officer. The files were received from his office at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, 33 Queen Square, London WC1N 3BG.
They represent a mixture of meeting papers and ILAE business papers which were sent out from the central office, and papers created by Simon as he administered projects such as the International Resource Centre and Website Task Force.
