About this work
Includes drafts for some of Renwick's published papers 1961-1990, though the majority of the material dates from the early 1970s. Articles documented range from 'Probable linkage between a congenital cataract locus and the Duffy blood group locus, with Dr Sylvia Dorothy Lawler, in Annals of Human Genetics vol 27 (1963), to 'On avoiding statistical bias in linkage-based counselling, in Annals of Human Genetics vol 54 (1990). There are some of the many book reviews by Renwick 1955-1980, and editorial correspondence, chiefly documenting the refereeing of papers for journals. There is also a set of Renwick's offprints.
