2008 Margaret Angus Research Fellowship Presentation

2008 Margaret Angus Research Fellowship Presentation by Andrea Melvin

Each year the Margaret Angus Research Fellow is selected by the Museum from a pool of qualified applicants. The appointed Fellow spends the duration of the six-month program researching and preparing a manuscript reflecting the history of health and health care as expressed by components of the Museum's collection. Each year, usually in October, the paper is presented by the fellow to an audience at the Museum, to the delight of the public and professionals alike.

Our 2008 Margaret Angus Research Fellow, Andrea Melvin, a graduate student at the University of Western Ontario’s Master of Arts in Public History Program, presented  her paper, Badges of Honour or Devices of Control?: Uniforms at Kingston General Hospital Training School for Nurses, 1930-1970, on Thursday, October 9, 2008.  View the abstract for this manuscript.
